10:30am: Competition Agility Class
Teams in this class will be working towards or currently are competing in agility trials. Dogs have been trained to understand and perform the individual obstacles, have contact obstacle criteria, can weave 12 poles with the handler on either side, the dog has a start-line stay, handler has a solid reward system in place (food or toy), handler can do both front and rear crosses, and the team can complete a sequence of 8 or more obstacles. We will work handling sequences with an emphasis on training and maintaining criteria, in preparation for agility trialing. While we will do some work on encouraging our dogs to give us their maximum performance on the sequences, this is not really the best class for dogs with significant motivation issues.
