Seminars and Workshops

Workshops – Wednesday May 25th, 2022

Nunes Agility Field, 1342 South First St. Turlock CA 95380

Running Points and Critical Points – 9:00 – 12:30

Running a course requires an understanding of your dog’s line – an understanding of your ability to move around the course and then putting both together to produce a smooth, choreographed dance resulting in a clean run.

Do you under or over estimate your speed relative to your dog’s speed?

Motion is our most important cue, learn how to define your running points and get to your critical points on course. Sequences will be 10+ obstacles consisting of jumps and tunnels only.

Limit 6 people – $130.00

 

Teaching Verbal Discriminations – !:30 – 5:00

Verbal cues should be used to add clarity to your handling and help your dog choose the correct response. However many verbal cues are taught with other motion/position cues and these cues tend to override the learning of the verbal cue as they are the more natural cues for your dog to follow. 

You should never expect a verbal cue to override motion and other physical cues. Verbal cues should be supported by handling but allow the handler to have more flexibility throughout the course.. When teaching the verbal cue it should be isolated from the other more natural cues.

These are some of the verbal cues we may cover during the workshop.

Collection; Slow dow; Backside; Threadle (slice); Threadle (wrap); Turn away – generic; Left and Right; S line to the tunnel; 3 – tunnel exit cues

It will not be possible to cover the training of all of these cues in one workshop so content will be based on working participants requests.

Limit 6 people – $130.00
