OUR MISSION

At Dog Gone Fun Agility, our mission is to provide an incredible dog training experience for the whole family. We use scientifically proven positive reinforcement-based training techniques to give you the best possible results that are FUN for both ends of the leash.

WHAT IS REWARD BASED TRAINING?

Positive reinforcement training uses rewards (treats, praise, toys, anything the dog finds rewarding) to increase the likelihood of desired behaviors. For example, when a dog does something such as a sit, it’s followed by a reward like a treat to make it enticing for the dog to repeat the sit. Positive reinforcement is one of your most powerful tools for shaping or changing your dog’s behavior.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

We are Texas’s only event center devoted to dogs and their people! Our turf agility arenas provide a safe, cushioned area for dogs to work and compete in. We also maintain small class sizes so that everyone gets individual attention. The highlight of our facility is our passion for teaching kids how to train dogs! We have an extensive Junior Handler program that allows children of all ages to learn to train their dogs while making friends with other kids who share their love of dogs.
