FUNagility

FUNAgility is an introductory level class that focuses on exposing dogs to equipment such as tunnel, jumps, chute, tire jump, table, wobble board, plank, mini teeter plank, and pro-preception work.   This is a great way to begin training for one of the most engaging sports you can do with your dog.

Positive Training Methodology

TNT Training teaches using positive reinforcement and motivational methods. To help your dog understand what we are trying to teach them, we use food rewards. This method of teaching is proven to accelerate the learning process for dogs. The alternative to positive training, is to use compulsion and adversive methods and this type of training is not only old-fashioned and highly outdated, but also produces dogs that work out of fear and not because they “want” to. At TNT we want both yourselves AND your dogs to enjoy the learning and training process.
