The dog-loving instructors at Q-Ball Agility—each possessing up to two decades of experience—take canine obedience to a whole new level. The experts go beyond standard sit and stay commands to bring out dogs' natural athleticism, teaching them and their owners to compete on agility courses punctuated by jumps, tunnels, climbing frames, and other obstacles. Dogs of any breed and nearly any age can bask in the fun, exercise, and social bonding that these and the centre's other canine-centred sports—such as flyball and rally obedience—provide. Of course, these feats of fitness can only be achieved with an understanding between each dog and its owner, so the centre also offers basic obedience classes to help pets learn the skills in sitting, heeling, and end-zone dancing that are essential on the agility course.
