If you are wondering about the name "MALNJACK" and have not yet figured it out, it represents the breeds of dogs we had when we started this venture, a Belgian MALinois aNd a JACK Russell Terrier.
We also host agility trials in the Windsor/Essex County area to encourage the growth of the sport locally. We hosted the first ever Sanctioned Agility Trial in Essex County in June 2002 and host an annual trial every year at Gil Maure Park. We also hope to host other trials in the future for different sanctioning organizations. Click HERE to go to our trial page for information on future trials.

We encourage anyone who is interested in taking classes with us to come out and watch a class and feel free to ask questions.
About Our Training:
We use positive, motivational training techniques that do not involve forceful training. Food and toy rewards are encouraged. Our emphasis is on learning safe and proper performance of the equipment in a fun environment. We teach our students the proper methods in performing the equipment, handling techniques and trial etiquette to prepare them for trials, but this does not mean they have to trial.
