Bay Area Dog Agility Training Resources
Many Bay Team members and participants offer dog agility training. Contact them to find out whether they provide the kind of training you're looking for, for example: recreational versus competitive, beginner vs. advanced. Each has something to offer!
The Bay Team itself does not provide agility training, and cannot endorse any particular trainer.
