Use of Motion with Debbie Lazaro

Monday, December 20: 4:30-8:00pm

Requirements: Although mainly tunnels and jumps will be used, dogs should be proficient on all obstacles and be able to sequence.
Description: Agility is a motion based sport. Your motion (direction, acceleration/deceleration, and lack of motion) is the primary cue that dogs read when navigating a course. However, these cues are so underused!!

Join us for a fun filled workshop "Use of Motion" to add another handling tool in your toolbox and help clarify your handling for your canine partner. We will explore transitioning from collection to extension (and vice versa) based upon your use of motion. That way, your dog can prepare appropriately to extend or collect.

What's My Line? with Sally Silverman

Friday, December 31: 10:00am-12:00pm

A clever agility student once had a lightbulb moment: agility is what happens BETWEEN the obstacles! She was referring to the lines. It is not just about each obstacle, but how your dog will get there, and how you will best be able to show him the lines. We will look at the map, and study the course without the dogs. Then we will run it. Must be able to do all obstacles (I can put out channel weaves if needed).
Limit 5 students (auditors welcome).
Cost: $40 members; $50 non-members; auditors $15 member; $20 non-member.
