January - Agility 101 Handling

This is a handling 101 class. Basic handling skills to guide your dog through obstacles. Focusing on rear and front crosses. Beginner course evaluation.
Passing Foundations for Agility is required

Handling 101 is designed for handlers and dogs that are just completing Foundations. It is preferred that the dog knows how to perform (and happily does) the tunnel. However, if your dog cannot do the tunnel, it is not a deal breaker. In the class we will teach your dog obstacle commitment. In addition, we will enhance your dog's understanding of send, recalls, front cross, and rear cross skills learned in Foundations so they can be applied to an obstacle course. This will be achieved through short 3-10 obstacle sequences. All jumps will be kept low or bars on ground so that your dog has the chance to focus on gaining an understanding of handling cues.

The class is taught in the Agility Arena building. This building is cooled by large fans and opening the doors in the summer and partially heated in the crating area in the winter. 

The dog's recommended minimum age for taking the this class is 18 weeks old.
Minimum age for handler is 12 years old
The class is designed for one handler with one dog

This is the recommended class after the dog passes the Foundations for Agility Class
