    Whether you would prefer to take a class with other dogs or get private instruction at our 8000 sq ft modern and equipped training center, we can accommodate you. Because of the limited availability, and liability, we are no longer taking on clients/cases for dogs with aggressive behaviors towards people, other dogs, or dogs that have a bite history. We encourage you to browse our website for more detailed information on what we have to offer as well as class descriptions and our class schedule. You can also contact us to speak with Val. Family Dog Obedience is a NON-SMOKING facility.

    The Agility Course Test (ACT)

    The Agility Course Test (ACT) is an entry-level agility event designed to introduce and welcome beginning dogs and their handlers to the AKC sport of agility. There are two levels of ACT events – ACT 1 and ACT 2. In addition to showing their dog's entry-level skills, exhibitors will learn to fill out an AKC entry form, check-in at the ring, taking their dog in and out of the ring, handling their dog while being judged, and other information that will help them when they move on to AKC agility trials with their dog.
