Grace Heck 12/14 Weaves: Love ‘em & Leave ‘em - WORKING
Weaves are one of the most complex behavior chains we train in agility, and
for many dogs they become a source of confusion, frustration, and demotivation. This seminar focuses on fun games to bring back your dog’s
love for weaves, or to start a new dog off on the right foot. We’ll learn games to magnetize dogs to the poles, help them find entries at speed, and learn how to continue weave pole performance independently. Appropriate for teams just learning to weave or looking to improve their weave pole skills. Dogs must have completed Agility Foundation Essentials or equivalent.

Grace Heck 12/15 Say It Again - WORKING
Verbals can help support your handling, providing clearer communication between you and your dog, especially when you can’t quite get to the right place at the right time. This seminar is great for folks who are already using verbals and are looking to clean up their dog’s understanding, as well as those who don’t have any verbals at all. We will walk you through some of the most commonly used verbals, and how to train them. Throughout the day we’ll put our words into action on International Style courses. Dogs should be sequencing 6 – 8 obstacles; jumps, tunnels, and weave poles will be used.

Kamal Fernandez 3/28 Competition Obedience Training - AUDITING

To be successful in a competition environment, a dog must learn that he needs to perform several behaviors before he receives a reward. Chains should start small and simple and grow in complexity as the dog's skill level increases. Thoughtful chaining training will lead to a confident partner in the ring!
