5:00pm: Deciding between Rally Skills and Focus for Agility – please reply with what you are interested in and I will decide from there.
A) Rally Skills would incorporate heeling tune-ups, jump work, and sequences at the Novice, Open, and Excellent levels in AKC Rally. Definitely recommended for anyone competing at the SB Kennel Club AKC Rally Trials at Earl Warren at the end of the month.
B) Focus for Agility: Will help you improve your skills in getting and maintaining your dog’s attention in a variety of situations. We will be using agility equipment and exercises to train and maintain attention in an active setting, and work on keeping your dog’s focus on you regardless of what is going on around it. This is a reward and play based class, designed to help your dog see you as the access to fun, play and all sorts of good things in life. We will be using agility equipment but this is not a handling or training class. We will also be working on games and drills to remind your dog how fantastic it is to be with you.
