AG210: Making contact - foundation skills for contact obstacles

Instructor: Ashley Deacon

Course Details

The contact obstacles (A-frame, dogwalk and teeter) are an important component of a standard agility course. While the three obstacles share a common performance criteria that requires the dog to hit a contact zone on exiting the obstacle, each one also provides a unique performance challenge. 

A solid foundation is needed to perform these obstacles safely, confidently and reliably. This class will provide an overview of the contact obstacles and their performance/judging requirements. The class will then focus on teaching your dogs a set of foundation skills for fast and accurate stopped contacts. Running contacts will be discussed, particularly in reference to the A-frame and may be the ideal solution for some dogs.

To participate in this class you DO NOT need access to the contact obstacle equipment.
