Appropriate for dogs learning to jump, for experienced dogs to develop more advanced jumping skills, problem solving for dogs with jumping issues and motivational experience for dogs lacking confidence.
1pm: “Agility Ring Prep and Distraction Proofing” (CLASS IS FULL)
This class will focus on building fluency of behaviors essential for trialing, both in and around the ring. Behaviors will be proofed in increasingly distracting environments including handler focus, startlines, recalls and weaves. Emphasis will be on creating positive before and after run routines that will transfer to trial situations. Developing distraction resistance, where distractions become a cue to focus and teaching the dog to choose to work through distraction in novel environments and situations. Appropriate for beginning to advanced teams, as well as those needing impulse control or motivation in trial situations.
