Our Mission:
Hill County Agility (HCA) in Kerrville, Texas, is a Dog Agility business owned by David and Caroline Hanson. The business was formed to offer Kerrville area residents and their dogs the opportunity to learn about and to participate in the exciting sport of Dog Agility.

Positive motivational methods are used to train the dogs and handlers. Such training gives the dogs more confidence, creates a strong bond between the dog and handler, and provides recreational fun. Any dog, whether pure breed or mixed breed, which is over a year old and physically fit, is welcomed in classes. Some students train just for fun, while others aspire to compete in sanctioned agility trials.

HCA is affiliated with United States Dog Agility Association (USDAA). Two sanctioned trial competitions are hosted each year in Kerrville in April and December. Training classes address issues in other trial venues such as American Kennel Club (AKC), and Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA).

David (Dave) G. C. Hanson is a retired Civil Engineer. He is originally from Hessle, England, in Yorkshire. He came to the States in 1983, when he and Caroline married. Dave’s passion is Dog Agility. He has been training and competing since 1984. In addition to teaching classes, he is a Masters’ Level Judge for USDAA, and a supervisor for apprentice judges . His wealth of experience gives him much on which to draw for his teaching and competing.

Caroline Tull Hanson Is a retired Counselor. Although she does not compete in Dog Agility, she is a faithful “groupie”. She serves as the Trial Secretary for the competitions hosted by HCA. In addition, Caroline is an avid reader of mystery novels, enjoys gardening, photography, computing, their small hill country ranch with its wildlife, and their pets.
