Master Agility Skills w/Anne
August 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
9:00am Master Agility Skills:
We will work on individual skills and sequences designed to teach and maintain criteria on contact obstacles and weaves, improve and build on handling skills, and prepare for some of the challenges you might see at a weekend agility trial. Dogs should have both on and off-side weaves, a solid contact performance, able to perform the other obstacles easily: tunnels, tire, spread jumps. Plan on rewarding your dog frequently during the sequences! Please have toys that you can hide treats in, so you can reward your dog at a distance.
Please arrive for this class at 8:15am. You have 10 minutes to set up your area for your dog, and then all hands are needed to start setting up equipment no later than 8:30am. Thank you for your cooperation. Please be ready to start walking exercises before 9:00am so we can maximize your working time. Thank you!
Enrollment opens on Thursday 8/10, at 5:00pm. If you can attend this next session (and I hope you can!) please reply no later than next Monday morning, ideally sooner in case the class you want fills up.
