All agility classes are taught either inside when appropriate or on our regulation-sized agility field at 1250 Gateway Road, Lake Park, FL 33403.

Class Cancellation Policy

Because class size is limited and sufficient time is necessary to contact alternate students, class tuition may only be refunded if notice, in writing or by email, is received seven (7) business days prior to the start date of a class by the agility training director. Classes require at least four (4) students to run. OTCPBC reserves the right to reschedule and/or refund monies to participants in classes with less than 4 students.

Note on Masters/Excellent: We will maintain a waiting list for those qualified participants who did not make the roster for this class. If a spot opens during the course of the class, people on the waiting list will be contacted in order and offered the slot for a prorated fee.

Please print the following information about classes, including club policies and directions, after you register for class:
