Instructor: Amanda Nelson
During this class, Amanda will be teaching her foundation training system that she uses with all of her dogs for distance skill training.
She will be going over all of her ground work exercises that teach a strong connection between dog and handler. These exercises also teach the dog confidence, which is crucial to distance work.
Students will learn her base cues and where to use them on the agility course, where to reward your dog for distance, and when to use toys vs. food.
All of these exercises will focus on the groundwork skills needed for more advanced distance work that will be in the Intermediate Distance class.
Whether you have a young dog just starting their agility career or a more advanced dog that you would like to increase their distance skills, this class will teach a solid foundation for fast, fun distance work!
