Action Agility started in 1999 as a small group of people trying to involve their pets in their daily activities. Since then Action Agility has become a non profit organization with over 30 members. We all share an interest in the well being and activities of our dogs.
Currently we offer 9 levels of classes, which include Puppy Class, Obedience Class I, Obedience Class II (Advanced Obedience), Foundation for Agility Class, Introduction to Agility, Level I Agility, Level II, Level III Agility, Level IV Agility, and Post Advanced Agility. We also offer Canine Good Citizen (CGC) testing.
Agility is not breed discriminate. Any age or breed of dog can be trained in agility. We require that your pet be evaluated and vaccinated by your veterinarian before you begin. However, there are restrictions that apply. We do not allow aggressive dogs, harsh training methods, and female dogs in season. All city of Minot Breed Restriction Ordinances will be followed.
Many of our instructors have competed and earned their titles including Jackie Jensen, Theresa Flagstad, Kristi Fredrickson, Rhonda Maas, Sarah Kimball, Diane Siveny, Alan Siveny (over 20 years in obedience training experience).
Our main objective is to make this a fun and safe experience for you and your dog. We emphasize praise and positive reinforcement. Our classes gradually train the dog and handler to work as a team and increase skills for competition. We do not require that you compete with your dog.
