Twin Ports Dog Training is offering small dog agility training in partner with the Arrowhead Small Dog Agility Associations. Arrowhead Small Dog Agility Assoc. is a member of the national Teacup Dog Agility Organization which offers agility trials for dog generally under 21” at the withers, https://www.k9tdaa.com . In Teacup Agility the equipment is smaller, and the ring is smaller than regular agility. The skills and action remain the same. Many dogs do both Teacup and regular agility.

 Classes are starting April 25th and go through June 13th, Sunday mornings from 11:00 to 12:00. The plan is to have beginner dogs in the 10 to 11 time slot and dogs already having some experience in the 11 to 12 time slots.
