FlatWork Advanced- 7.20pm 

FLATWORK-  This is where all the groundwork for Blueprint happens…. It’s all those skills you train so when you apply it to the sexy stuff everything just flows and connects like magic…

We will be progression on our Flatwork from October and this time incorporating more work with low jumps- Please note you do not need to have attended Oct class to get the benefits from this class. 

We will be working on our low jumps & cones adding cues to our jumps and learning moves such as 
Back of jumps
Threadles
send and Leave
Anti Flanking drills 
 

Using 1-2 jump (bump or 200 height) Cone’s crates/mat & tunnel

Aimed at dogs who have done foundation aged from approx 11mths old & need to be confident in wrapping a cone

 

Blueprint 8.30pm

 

Handling 360 has evolved and modernised to H360 Connect. There have been some changes to treadle mechanics & our checks, so we will explain those changes and you can make an educated decision if you wish to adopt those changes or stick with what you know.  Within H360 connect there are hundreds of training skills & Drills and we are going to pick some juicy ones I enjoy training with both Quest & Plug ….

YEP! Those of you on H360 you can come and get real-life feedback and maybe give you an inspiration to keep going on after classes are done. For those of you not in H360 well you get a glimpse of the cool games you are missing out on..

What is Blueprint…

Basically it's testing, challenging, growing and proofing skills you have with Lala, threadles, Check, jump etc.. using cones and a few jumps… It finds your holes, it gives you clarity on where you need to be & what you need to concentrate on. It's brilliant for timing practice in handling and saying your cues.
Classes will be maxed at 6 you will be paired and video each other so you can really see what you are doing if you wish.

Your dog needs to have an understanding of their basic cues & be at least 13mths old. All jumps will be at 200 as its skill training not jump training.

Those of you who did our indoors blueprint are welcome to join this class too as the setups won't be the same.

dogs need to be confident in wrapping a cone & be confident with jumps
