From 7:30 – 8:30 there will be an hour dedicated to regular run thrus for everyone. Classes will be mentored by advanced handlers participation in the class. Please follow our main post on the home page for how to register for either or both.  Costs for the skill building session would be $15.00 for Hilltown Hound members, $20.00 for non members.

Weekend Workshops are held by special guest instructors. Workshops may focus on varying Agility topics and specific Agility handling techniques, depending on the guest instructor. Places and Prices will vary per event 1/2 day, full-day, or weekend, workshops, depending on guest instructor.  Each workshop will be announced with details in advance in the Workshops tab, pre-registration and deposit is required.  We announce all Workshops through our web site.

Date Night Agility Runthrus are scheduled run-thrus that can take place on a weeknight or a weekend. This is a great opportunity for you,  as a potential club member or agility dog handler to come and visit the barn and ask any questions.   Typically this evening will not be instructor taught, but instead will be a 2-3 hour open training time, with organized, nested courses and planned by a club member.  All attendees must have had previous class time, and familiarity on all agility obstacles. Pay per run and Pre-registration is appreciated.
