Saturday, October 20, 2018 "Putting Your Dog's Best Paw Forward"
Do you understand what the term lead change means? Do you understad how to cue your dog to be on the correct lead? Do you understand how cueing correct lead changes helps prevent dropped bars? A handler who can answer yes to these questions has the advantage when guiding a dog through an agility course. This workshop will help you gain that advantage by teaching you to recognize what lead your dog should be on at each part of an agility course.

Saturday, November 17, 2018 "Handle Lines Not Obstacles"
Understanding your dog's optimal path from start line to finish line is a critical skill for a handler to possess. Handlers who handle lines not individual obstacles are more likely to have more fast clean runs and more productive training sessions. This workshop will teach you to imagine your dog's ideal path and how to handle in such a way as to keep your dog on that path from start to finish on an agility course.
