TVKC Agility History
Agility was introduced to the Fairbanks area in 2001 by Pat and Sheila Carter. In July 2002, TVKC held an Agility Sanction Match making our club eligible to host our first agility trial in 2003. We held our trials in July at the University of Alaska until 2005. Our agility classes were held in the Kiwanis Building at the Fairgrounds through the Fall 2005 and then our classes moved to the new barn at Camp Li-Wa.
We added three day trials in 2009 in April and September. In 2011 AKC allowed clubs more trials and we went to three – three-day trials a year. In 2013 AKC approved twelve trials a year and we added a three-day trial in October. We offer eight week classes in the Fall and Spring at Camp Li- Wa. We also offer outdoor training at two locations, during the summer months.
