Next Session of Classes Begin

September 30th

Agility Foundations (Prerequisite for all classes): Learn to engage with your dog and prepare for agility training.  Fast-paced games and lots of focus will get your team ready! Fridays at 6 p.m., starts October 4th (first class 1.5 hours)

Intro to Obstacles:  Building on Foundations, learn how to negotiate jumps, contact obstacles and more.  Start the basics by learning jumping techniques, including how to approach jumps from all angles no matter where you are on a course. Learn how to negotiate the contact obstacles such as the dog walk and A-Frame, including how to create contact behavior. Understand the mechanics of putting drive into obstacles. Improve focus with your dog and begin to sequence a few obstacles. Work on the mechanics of front cross and rear cross for both handler and dog. Mondays at 6:30 p.m., starts SEPTEMBER 30th

Intro to Handling:  We will work on short sequences that use the basic handling skills from earlier classes.  When and how do you use a front cross, rear cross or blind cross?  Serpentines and easy threadles will add to the complexity.  Using the existing course set up each week you will walk a short course with the instructor, and discuss the best handling technique based on your ability and your dog’s performance.  Also, will introduce 2×2 concept and very basic teeter concepts, like the bang game or using the tables on either end of the teeter to get the concept.  Reinforce contact behavior on all contact obstacles. Thursdays at 7:15 p.m., starts OCTOBER 3rd OR Sundays at 3:00 p.m., starts OCTOBER 6th

Teeters and Weaves with Handling: Focus on these obstacles and learn to do them well, with some more advanced handling techniques.  Students who come to this class will know and understand how to negotiate shorter courses and they will have had the basic intro to teeter and weaves.  In this class, the focus will be on these obstacles and how to teach your dog to perform on these obstacles.  Some handling before and after the teeters and weaves will be included.  The goal of this class is to help students polish and perfect their techniques.  If enough advance is made, the students may go on to do more complex courses that include teeters and weaves.Thursdays at 6:00 p.m., starts OCTOBER 3rd
