Lynn Morgan from Agility Directions is teaming up with HHHS to offer agility classes at our shelter. Agility is the ultimate game for you and your dog. It is an activity that strengthens the bond between dog and handler and provides fun and exercise for both. Agility boosts the confidence of both dog and handler, too. We encourage people of all ages to sign up for the class with their four-legged friend. You will not be disappointed with the fun you have learning this fast-growing sport with your dog! NOTE: Dogs must be 8 months of age to take the class.
