Sports & Specialty Classes

On the lookout for new and exciting things to do with your dog?

Here's a chance to try new and entertaining things to do together, with just the level of challenge that appeals to you. This is a great way to provide mental stimulation and a good workout. ARF will let you figure out who gets the biggest benefit! ARF's facility uses an outdoor field when the weather is good and a clean, bright indoor space with rubberized flooring when the weather is not as cooperative.

Read Dog Training Policies and contact us with questions.
