Seminars and Workshops

 

 

March 2-5, 2017

Thorson’s Arena, Morgan Hill, CA 

Fast Forward Agility is excited to be hosting OneMind Dogs coaches Tuulia and Timo Liuhto at Thorson’s Arena, Morgan Hill in March 2017. They will be joined by OneMind Dog Assistant Coach Kelly Chaffin.

Thorson’s Arena has 2 covered arena areas and there will be enough room to crate under cover throughout the seminars.

It is my intention to accommodate as many people as are interested and hopefully I will be adding an additional OneMind Dog Coach to the schedule.

Each seminar is 2 days (it is possible to attend for one day but priority will be given to those people able to attend for both days). I am still finalizing the schedule but you will work with 2 different coaches over the 2 days.

Seminar 1

You will learn the most common handling techniques for the types of courses you will be running in competitions. 2 seminars offered twice March 2-3 and March 4-5.

  • 9 am to 5 pm, one hour for lunch each day
  • 10 working positions available
  • Cost is $475 for the two day seminar
  • Instructors: OneMind Dogs Coach and Assistant Coach

You and your dog should know the basics of agility and have a strong foundation together. Dogs should be able to sequence jumps and tunnels, but jumping full height is not required.

Experienced OneMind Dogs handlers that want to review and focus on these techniques are also welcomed.

You will learn the individual techniques then how to apply the techniques in sequence work.

Seminar 2 

You will learn more advanced handling techniques. 2 seminars offered twice March 2-3 and March 4-5.

  • 9 am to 5 pm, one hour for lunch each day
  • 10 working positions available
  • Cost is $475 for the two day seminar
  • Instructor: OneMind Dogs Coach and Assistant Coach

Seminar 2 is for teams who are already familiar with the common OneMind Dogs handling techniques and have trained them with a OneMind Dog Coach in the past 24 months. Jumping full height is not required.

Experienced OneMind Dogs handlers that want to review and focus on these techniques are also welcomed.

You will learn the individual techniques then how to apply the techniques in sequence work (10-20 obstacles).

Seminar 3
