Intro to Canine Conditioning & Fitness

Friday, May 24th *FULL* (names can be added to the waitlist directly on the registration calendar)

This mini workshop will introduce you and your dog to a variety of exercises that you can do at home to increase flexibility, strength and build muscle in your canine companion and athlete. 

Taught by Paula Collins, Fitpaws Master trainer and currently completing her CCFT (Certified Canine Fitness Coach) through the University of Tennessee.

Recognizing & Handling Lines in Agility

Sunday, May 26
6 hour workshop!!!  9:00am-4:00pm
$220+tax for a working spot (register on "registration calendar) limited to 8 working spots
$100+tax for an audit spot (unlimited spots. email [email protected])

Lines, what's the big deal? Have you run a course and afterwards thought, hmm, my dog didn't see that line very well? Or your dog missed an obstacle you thought they would see. Or they had to make a big correction to their line to make it to the next obstacle. This 6 hour workshop is all about teaching the handler how to look at courses and see the true line the dog is likely to take and making the best handling decisions to negotiate them.  Join Paula Collins, an agility judge and competitor, in learning how to see these and what to do about it for your dog.  The seminar will include a classroom portion and a hands on portion for optimal learning and understanding for the handler.

Intro to Gamble Skills Workshop

Friday, June 21

Teach your dog the skills needed for distance handling for the games of AAC Gamblers and CKC Points and Distance!

Dogs and handler will learn the "go on" cue (driving a line away from the handler), "get out" (a lateral push away from the handler), and "switch" (direction change away from the handler).  We will discuss how to handler distance sequences for consistency and understanding for your dog.  Skills will be practised on several novice distance sequences.

Jump and tunnels only will be used for this workshop. This workshop is ideal for any dog that has taken a level 2 agility class or higher.
