“Enjoy the Drive!”

Welcome to K9 POWERSPORTS Dog Agility Training, here in beautiful Grand Junction, Colorado! We are a brand new indoor/outdoor dog agility training facility with state-of-the-art equipment, ready to help you have more fun with your dog than you ever thought possible!

Weather is not an issue here at K9 POWERSPORTS! Our indoor training area is a 4,800 sq.ft. heated building with a fabric tension design roof. As I am fond of saying, if it is 5 degrees outside and snowing, we will be training here! Too hot to train in the summer? Not here! The white PVC fabric roof reflects a lot of the sun's heat, and what does seep through is negated with the use of industrial fans and a large portable swamp cooler. The indoor running surface is pro-quality synthetic soccer/football turf laid on a 4" layer of road base.....great for both dogs and humans!

When the weather is a little more agreeable, we train outside in the 9,000 sq.ft. fully fenced ring on wonderful natural grass!

A brief history note- Dog agility got its start in England back in 1978 as a demonstration sport at the huge Crufts Dog Show. Developing and mutating over the following decades, it is now the fastest growing dog sport in the world, with competitions held on almost every continent.

For the newcomers out there, dog agility is a team sport consisting of one dog, negotiating a field of obstacles, and one handler directing the dog. The team runs against an electronic timer, and the team with the fastest time and the least amount of mistakes wins. Teams compete against each other based on the shoulder height of their dogs and their level of experience.

When a team begins competing at the lowest levels, the courses are fairly simple and straightforward. But as they progress upward, the courses get considerably more complex…..and the competition gets tougher!

Our job here at K9 POWERSPORTS is to show you, the handler, how to train your dog to be competitive in the ring. Basically, the goal is for your dog to be fast, accurate, and have more fun doing agility than anything else! This makes for a dog with great “Drive”! We want both you and your dog to “Enjoy the Drive”! We train with positive reinforcement dog only! A happy dog is a motivated dog!
