We limit these classes to 8 dogs per 90 minute class. (During Covid: we limit classes to less handlers)
Many Class Options Available:
Tuesdays: 8:00am-9:30am / 5:00pm-6:30pm / 6:30pm-8:00pm

Class structure will be two longer technical skills/courses. These courses may be adjusted to suit the majority of teams levels. I try and design skills that are conducive to proofing contacts, weave speed and independence, discriminations and jumping skills when possible. The courses are also designed for proofing dog training skills and more technical handling.
Teams will walk together as a group and we will discuss various handling options. Each team will run the course and then I will make suggestions to improve efficiency and speed in your canine partner. During this critique, I may have the Handler redo part of the course. Teams will then run entire course again to smooth out any parts they had difficulty with or to try a different handling option we may have discussed during the critique.
As an instructor, I focus on reminding Teams to be consistent with their body cues and verbals. I challenge them to time their connections and cues so their canine partner receives the information when needed to improve timing and build canine confidence. I remind handlers often to be generous with rewarding their canine teammate.
Once all Teams have completed the first course, we move onto a second course. These classes are popular and are managed through an email distribution list.

Come have fun with your young dog. Each class will start by going over with the group some “do on your own exercise stations”. These stations will focus on shaping desirable behaviors with clicker training, toy drive building, we will introduce: balance boards, multi surface exposure, limb awareness, core & cone work etc. Teams will then rotate on their own through these stations. Each team will also take at least two turns to work one on one on a different skill with an instructor. Sessions with instructors will focus on exposure to certain agility obstacles emphasis on confidence building, Contacts will be introduced appropriately based on age and level of training each team has had. We will cover, Turns, Side Changes, Recalls, Foundation jumping, Sends, the use of restrained recalls and toy play.
