Agility Run-Through Information Page

Agility Run-Throughs at Oriole are being offered on selected Friday nights and Monday mornings during the winter semester.

The Run-throughs are held in Oriole’s climate controlled facility in a 90′ x 50′ ring on artificial turf.   Equipment may vary slightly from week to week but is generally primarily AKC equipment with some USDAA obstacles.

Nested AKC Excellent and Novice courses will be offered.

Fees:

$10 for Non-Members,
$7 Members, and
$5 for Contributing Members

Cash/Check accepted. If bringing cash, please bring exact change.  Checks should be made payable to Oriole Dog Training Club.

Some important things to know:

  • Oriole Dog Training Club follows Baltimore County School weather closures. If that school system is closed that day, no run-throughs will happen that night.
  • Before coming to class, please check this run-through page for any last-minute cancellations. This is the only way for us to communicate with you for last-minute changes.
  • When it is your turn to run, you will have 2 minutes in the ring to either run the course or to practice individual skills. You will be timed.
  • Please potty your dog on the grass area diagonal from the building.
  • There is a $5 cleaning fee for any dog who has an accident in the building.

Friday Night details

Walk-Through is 7:00pm and the Run-Through starts immediately thereafter and is expected to finish up at 8:00pm

Some important things to know:

  • Friday night run-throughs are held on the same night as one of our Flyball classes. There is loud barking at times. Many dogs benefit from the distraction.
  • If your dog needs additional training/socialization in certain trial-specific areas that are not generally seen in class (timer noises, measuring device, table, broad jump, judge in the ring, ring crew, etc.), please let organizer Terry Todesco know ahead of time.
  • Terry can be contacted via email at terryatodesco@gmail.com

Agility practice sessions run from 10:45 AM thru 12:15 PM.

Some important things to know:

  • If your dog needs additional training/socialization in certain trial-specific areas that are not generally seen in class (timer noises, measuring device, table, broad jump, judge in the ring, ring crew, etc.), please let organizer Richard Mathews know ahead of time.
