Introduction to Agility II with Anne, 5 of 6
January 22, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$90 – $120
Introduction To Agility II
This class is for dogs and handlers new to the fun sport of agility and have attended a previous session of Intro to Agility. We will build on the skills learned in the first session of Intro to Agility, run longer sequences of obstacles, and improve our dogs’ understanding and performance of specific obstacles such as the weave poles and contact obstacles. Additional skills emphasized in this class: various agility foundation exercises, encouraging the frequent use of rewards and reinforcers for the dogs, reinforcing a start-line stay, learning how to train cues to help the dogs understand what we are asking of them, to teach the dogs to have a more independent performance on the obstacles. The main goal for this class is to have a fun hour with our dogs, teaching the basics of the great sport of agility and setting the stage for future learning.
For all Agility Classes, please bring with you each week:
Your dog on a flat buckle collar or front-clip harness. Bring a variety of delicious meaty treats for your dog, water and a bowl, a chair for yourself, shade for your dog, clicker, 4 or 6 foot leash (no flexi’s please), and ideally a crate or pen for your dog. Please bring a toy or two that your dog really enjoys, to use as a reward throughout the class.
