Novice/excellent Sequencing  7.20pm-8.20pm

 Novice level sequencing - This class is aimed at those in Novice/Excellent the courses each week will vary so we tend not to say it will be strictly Novice. This month we are going to try to incorporate more contacts and weavers as this is an area many have said they want and an area that needs some work. 

Pre Novice- 7.20pm-8.20pm

As the name suggests this is our Pre Novice class, where we work on skills such pinwheels, driving forward, front crosses, rear crosses, tunnels, lead-outs & so much more. Breaking up skills found in a novice course where you can test, reward and build confidence in not only the dog but in the handlers too. This will be Jumping and tunnels only (no contacts & Weavers) 

Min Age: 14mths and dog needs to be familiar with obstacles. 

Excellent/Masters Sequencing  8.30pm-9.30pm

 

Excellent level sequencing (for those looking for more of a master challenge these courses can be made to present more of a challenge if that is what you are looking for)- Each week we will help build confidence  & also incorporate the skill of running a full course.

this month we are going to try to incorporate more contacts and weavers as this is an area many have said they want and an area that needs some work. 

This is aimed at anyone in the high end of Excellent/Masters Level


Foundation- 8.30pm-9.30pm

Foundation is the base layer for any brilliant agility dog,  training is a bit like a balancing act from ground speed,  control of our dogs, great body awareness & the list goes on. But the most important thing is to have is a good connection with our teammate as agility is all about having fun together as a team.

 

Using predominantly shaping to train during these classes you learn not only foundation skills to create an awesome agility dog but also life skills, relationship building all while just having fun with your pup & other enthusiasts in a positive & FUN environment.

No matter what level you are at, be it a very beginner to an experienced handler.

 

Foundation class covers such things as:

 

·      Games (learning how to play with our dogs)

·      Shaping

·      Start line stays

·      Reinforcement Zone

·      Recalls

·      Body Awareness
