Running A-frame On-Line Class

International competitor and OMD Coach, Rachel Sanders, is offering her running A-Frame box method in an online classroom for the first time ever! All levels are welcome.  This method has proved to be highly successful in dogs of all shapes and sizes.  If you are just starting out with the box, have started training the box but have questions and would like additional help and feedback or you have a stopped A-frame and would like to retrain your dog to a running A-frame, this class is for you!

Rachel’s method gives your dog a clear understanding of the criteria for a successful running A-frame performance.  The box method trains your dog using a clear step by step process.  Specific criteria is achieved with the completion of each step before moving on to the next step.  This allows both dog and handler to fully understand each behavior.

The rate of learning is different for each dog and handler team therefore Rachel structures her course to the individual, not a set curriculum.  There will be no “group” weekly assignments.  Rachel will help with the training of each step as well as the criteria needed for each step throughout the course with the use of video or her own dogs as well as personal feedback to each participant’s submitted video.  The goal of Rachel’s method is to train your dog to perform the A-frame reaching the contact zone in a comfortable and reliable manner.

This course will run for 16 weeks for all levels – starting week of February 20th 2017.
