You and your dog need to live more active and healthy lives. For many of us, that is tough because of time constraints, family dynamics, or simply a lack of knowledge on how best to do so. That is where we come in.
6 Hairy Legs has developed a selection of both online and local dog fitness classes and dog dance workshops to get you and your dog moving, while teaching your dog basic obedience skills. We currently offer local classes in Raleigh with more coming to Durham and Chapel Hill.
Join us for some creative dog training through fitness and dance!

We begin with a warm-up for both you and your dog, using "brain games" and light stretches to awaken the mind and body. Once the muscles are warm, we will move into a more aerobic section of the workout combining stretching, exercise equipment, and dance. It is sure to get you and your dog’s blood pumping! We end with a slow cool down. (30-minutes)
30 minute class $15.00
Rally is a dog sport based on obedience skills where dogs work through a course and execute specific tasks. 6 Hairy Legs has taken this concept and made more interactive and movement-based class. This course will challenge yet create a more positive association with basic obedience commands. It makes heeling more fun and teaches dog and partner structure, rhythm, and phrasing of the music. You will learn to work together as a partnership and teach your dog how to walk nicely and understand the commands better because you've built up a positive rapport between human and dog. It’s almost a dance!
Classes held every Sunday 1:00 – 2:00 pm
1 hour class $25.00
