AVID offers private instruction for a one-on-one training experience. This is a perfect option
to maximize your time to train for agility. Also a great option for multiple dogs. Some people
use this option to have some fun with thier dog that likes to work alone.
Private Lessons are by far the best way to learn how to train your dog. Having your own
private coach to teach you to make the necessary modifications to your training will ensure
that you get the results you desire.
The two main advantages with private lessons are: 1/we can concentrate the entire lesson
on you and your dog, customizing the training to meet your needs. 2/We can schedule your
lessons anytime during the week day or on some weekends. Currently we are offering these
sessions Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday during the day.
We can work all aspects of agility training with fully approved agility equipment including
handling, focus work, motivation, games, contacts, distance etc.
