AG410: Intro to Distance in Agility

Instructor: Amanda Nelson

Course Details

Note: Week one class lectures will be released on June 1st but your instructor will not join the classroom until Monday, June 4 due to participation in the FDSA Training Camp. This class will be extended to July 15th to allow for this delay.

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 how to apply pressure and when to apply pressure for distance work as well as close up work. 
All of these exercises will focus on the groundwork skills needed for more advanced distance work that we will cover in the Advanced Distance and Directionals 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! This is a foundations class that will not be using a lot of equipment and will be working on building confidence with groundwork and cone exercises.
