Threadle Slices & Wraps

Friday 12/2 10am-1:30

 

In this workshop, we will focus on the handling of various types of threadle wraps and slices.  While I do recommend training verbals for these skills, this workshop will not focus on the training of the skills or verbals but rather how to handle them.

Deceleration

Friday 12/2 2:30-6

 

Whether your dog is fast, doesn’t like turning or is undermotivated, this is a much-needed skill for all agility competitors.  Most agility courses consist of many more turns than straight lines and most of these turns need deceleration skills.  While it may seem like a basic skill, deceleration is often underutilized and misunderstood.  In this workshop, you will learn why, when, and how to use deceleration.  We will cover the elements of handling including connection, footwork, timing, and your dog’s response to your cues.  We will cover the differences between the rhythm change, send, and turning into your dog.
