Agility Classes: Agility Foundations for Young Dogs

Note that schedule lists individual class dates as some weeks class will not meet!  Please note the schedule!

The focus of the class will be on key foundation skills jumping, sequencing (handling) and contacts.  Some of the skills that will be covered are early commitment to obstacle, the ability to transition from obstacle to handler focus, understanding how to respond to handling cues, proper jumping form (Susan Salo jump grids will be used), and skills related to performing contact equipment.  In addition some work on focus, drive, ability to work in distractions, stays and recalls will be covered as needed.  You will have some time on the floor each week, but will be expected to work on the skills at home in order to progress.

This class is for dogs 10 months or older who are training for the agility ring.  Dogs must have a reasonable stay, recall, and some work at side (both right and left).  There are 6 working spots.  Auditors are welcome, but must be respectful and not take up student time.

All dogs must be on a nylon/leather collar and 5-6 foot leash.  No prong/choke chains allowed.  Handler must bring toys, a variety of soft treats, at least one light colored treat, and a notebook.

The class will meet at 8 pm for one hour on the following Tuesdays:  June 2, 9, 30 and July 7, 14 and 21.

Instructor: Suzanne Stachurski  Planning of class content Julie Weir and Suzanne Stachurski
