Intelligent Agility Comes to Humboldt County!
Save the date, Sunday May 31 starting at 11:00 a.m., and bring your pooch to the Humboldt County Fairgrounds in Ferndale for a free Play Day to see if agility is for you. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (949) 412-3245 to reserve a spot. Spaces are limited.
Starting class dates subject to change due to factors such as weather.
The nature of Lure Coursing allows the class structure to be more flexible than agility. With our classes, you can sign up anytime! Classes are sold in sets of five. Check the website before coming to class - in the event of a cancellation, we will post it at the top of the home page. Upon sign up, you can take lure coursing at your own pace through an issued class punch card. Whenever you come to class, your card is punched. When the card has been punched five times, you have completed a set of classes. It's that easy!
You can usually tell how a dog will react to lure coursing early on, unlike agility. As a side note, we often see dogs who struggle early in agility blossom as the class proceeds. Since we are looking for a new location, we will not be taking any signups for Lure Coursing at this time.
Like our agility classes, our Lure Coursing is outdoors, on grass and the course is fenced in. We want our clientele to be able to relax and enjoy the sport more without having to worry about their dogs ever suddenly running away.
Intelligent Agility is always concerned about your dogs’ safety. So when your dog begins Lure Coursing, the courses are short. As your dog builds stamina and gets used to more sudden turns, the courses become longer and more complex. It’s tempting to want to immediately get out to the course and watch their dogs do long runs, but this is dangerous for any dog. This is for the safety of your canine companion. As always, safety and fun are our topmost concerns. Having said that, we think that everyone watching their dog respond to the shorter courses of beginning lure coursing will find watching their dog chasing the lure quite exhilarating! It's all about you and your dog having fun!!
