Pre-Novice and Novice Agility Training Info:
Private or Semi-Private Agility Training Sessions are available on a limited basis.

During Training Sessions we will:
Focus on skills that are specific to agility AND supportive skills which will enhance your ability to team with your dog.
Strive to help you and your dog improve your communication skills through a variety of static and dynamic (moving) activities
Give your dog the opportunity to improve their baseline performance on specific agility obstacles in increments designed to build confidence.
Give you the opportunity to increase your ability to give consistent signals, plan your dog’s path, move through space, AND build on SUCCESS.
Session time can be divided amongst:
Directional activities –
o your ability to plan your path and use consistent, timely and appropriate signals
o your dog’s ability to move or not move - with you, towards you or away from you
o your ability to use clear CONSISTENT signals
o your dog’s mental and physical ability and your dog's DESIRE to respond to your signals
o your ability to comprehend what physical and communication skills your dog needs to negotiate specific equipment
o your dog’s ability to comprehend their “job” and physically perform obstacles
Obstacle/dog/handler focus –
o your ability to plan a path, time signals, attend to your dog and physically maneuver yourself through obstacles or sequences
o your dog’s ability to transition from attending to you, processing your signals, moving through space and performing obstacles.
how to shape behavior
o when, where and how rewards are most effective
o how to increase the likelihood that a behavior will occur across many environments or under increasingly diverse situations (playing through generalization activities)
o keeping the 80% rule (how to minimize frustration!)
