Start Line Stays

We all have had issues somewhere along the line when our dog that is solid in training breaks the stay line stay in the ring. The worst and hardest part is getting the stay back once it is lost. Now is the time to fix that nagging problem. This class will teach you and your dog the skills necessary for your dog to remain at the start line and on a table.

Flatwork

Flatwork is the foundation of all agility handling and has many benefits for agility. A must for all Agility dogs. Furthermore, is great for puppies that are too young to jump and dogs that need to build self-esteem or just learn body placement.  My Flatwork Class will teach you and your dog positional cues, body placement, footwork for front and rear crosses, etc.

Good handlers are not only concerned with properly timed directional cues but also want to let their dogs know how much effort is needed for each obstacle. This class teaches you how to accomplish the basic and most popular handling techniques. To make the techniques easier, there are diagrams, videos and explanations of each technique.
