Agility Teamwork

Prerequisite: Enrollment is limited to 8 handlers and dogs. Only handlers who are currently enrolled in Intro to Agility or Beginners Agility (or who took either class during the last session) are eligible to enroll in this class.

 

This class will introduce you and your dog to foundation exercises essential to success in the agility ring. Our Intro to Agility and Beginning Agility classes teach you and your dog to safely execute the agility obstacles. But you and your dog must also build consistent teamwork and communication, and that is the focus of this class. Nearly all the exercises will be worked with a clicker. You can bring your own clicker, or the club will provide one.

Topics covered during the class include: Training using positive reinforcement ; how to use the clicker; flatwork ; line up on either side; release command; name equals head check; come to hand, spin, wrap, send; turning into the dog means the dog turns into you; plank work for contacts; tippy board and start lines. Enrollment is limited to 8 handlers and dogs. Only handlers who are currently enrolled in Intro to Agility or Beginners Agility (or who took either class during the last session) are eligible to enroll in this class. We will meet inside the club on Sundays, 11am to noon. Dogs must not bark when other dogs are working. Dogs must be able to work both on- and off-leash, and must have reliable recalls. Dogs must be at least 8 months old. This is not a puppy socialization or training class. Aggressive dogs will be immediately excused. No flexi-leads, head halters, or choke/pinch collars. Participants must follow club guidelines regarding mask use and social distancing.

Cost $65.00.
