Dog Quest has been owned and operated by Anne Platt since 2001. All of the agility classes for Dog Quest are taught at one location in Escondido, California which is North San Diego County. In 2021 Anne welcomed a few new instructors to her training facility to teach the beginning agility classes.
Most people starting their dogs in agility have no idea what they are getting into aside from having a good time with their dog. Our goal is to prepare each student for competition. We will make sure each student understands the basic rules and have the skills needed to run a complete agility course. If competition is not something you’d like to try, that is fine, but you’ll be prepared just in case you change your mind.
What makes Anne Platt stand out among the crowd of dog agility instructors is her long list of accomplishments with multiple dogs at national level competitions. If you aspire to achieve the skills needed to compete well against the best in the nation, Anne is your trainer.
