CPT agility students may also purchase practice time at CPT’s Sandy Springs Training Center. In contrast, with our competitors, one of the barriers to agility progress is access to equipment and facilities. Fortunately, CPT helps our agility students overcome the significant obstacle of practice time, which results in superior progress and greater enjoyment.
* All CPT courses and lessons require pre-registration. Payments to CPT are non-refundable. CPT closes group classes to further registration after 12 dogs enroll.
Agility is fast and exciting! Here Laura runs Penny over the jumps.
CPT is proficient at training all breeds and sizes of dogs. Here we see Balto, a Bichon Frise owned by former CPT obedience student and Agility Trainer Sierra Schmidt, flying through the tunnel. In December 2006, Sierra and Balto won the inaugural AKC National Agility Invitational.

Many CPT students particpate in Agility just for fun. However, some Agility students enjoy competing. If winning is fun, Pippin is a very happy dog. Wow! Look at all those ribbons! These are just a few of Pippin’s 50+ first place ribbons. Pippin and his owner Holly Schmidt started as CPT obedience students. With Holly’s handling, Pippin progressed to become a prestigious MACH4, a sixth place finisher in the AKC Nationals, and the #2 lifetime Agility Toy Poodle.
