Smooth Moves: Adding the Dog to Your Agility Handler Mechanics

6-WEEK COURSE: OCTOBER 1 – NOVEMBER 11

 This class introduces handling techniques to your dogs, then proofs them and progresses them into short sequences. We will begin with the key skills Megan believes dogs need before sequencing should begin: commitment, keeping commitment, and following the handling. We will also focus on the handler’s ability to see commitment and provide consistent, proactive cues. Next, teams will be introduced to each new technique either on the flat or with one wing and then on one jump. In order to develop balanced focus between the obstacle and handler, students will learn optimal reinforcement strategies to reward the dog for correctly following your handling. You will also learn about using reinforcers to proof these behaviors by using either-or training, Megan’s favorite, to solidify your team’s skills. Going from one jump to sequencing should feel easy and doable, without frustration. This class will show you how that can be done!

 

This class is perfect for those who have completed Agility Handler Mechanics and are looking to continue their agility training, but also is suitable for any agility team looking to start their sequencing in a systematic way or proof their agility skills. 

 

 

 

Teeter Training: From Trick to Treat!

6-WEEK COURSE: OCTOBER 1 –  NOVEMBER 11

 This class starts with a trick and ends with a teeter! Teeter training can begin pretty early in a dog’s agility career because it begins with a simple trick: backing up! From this rear end awareness exercise, we will introduce the 4-on behavior onto a wobble board or tippy board, name and proof the behavior, and then start the process of transferring that behavior to a low teeter. Each team will be on their path to a full-height teeter, complete with sequencing and handling skills.
