Discrimination Drills

Friday 9/23 9am-12:30pm

We will work on verbal/handling discriminations for 2-3 obstacles in close proximity to each other.  Depending on the level of dogs signed up, we may also run sequencing/coursework with discriminations throughout.

 

Dogs should already be proficient on verbal/handling skills on jumps and tunnels.  Weaves will likely be included but can be skipped for younger dogs.

 

 

Short Sequences/Young Dogs – MEB

Friday 9/23 – 1:30pm-5pm

Sequences will consist of 4-6 obstacles. This is the perfect workshop for young dogs that are just learning to sequence. Obstacles will consist of jumps & tunnels only.

 

Dogs should be sequencing 4-6 obstacles. Contacts and weaves not required and full height jumps not required.

 

 

Got it

Saturday 9/24 9am-12:30pm

MEB’s highly popular workshop! In this seminar, you will learn how, when and where to look at your dog vs. looking at the line. You will learn finally how to use your connection to be timely and to keep the dog committed. 

 

This workshop is suitable to any level dog that is sequencing 4 obstacles or more. Obstacles will include jumps and tunnels only.

 

 

Deceleration

Saturday 9/24 – 1:30pm-5pm

This is a much-needed workshop for agility competitors and is gaining as much popularity as the Got It workshop.  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.’

 

Dogs should be sequencing 10 obstacles.  Contacts and weaves not required.

 

  

Coursework

Sunday 9/25 – 9am-12:30pm

Handlers will be put to the test working on technical courses.  Courses will consist of about 20-25 obstacles and will be the equivalent of the highest level seen in the US. 

 

Dogs should be 18 months or older, proficient on all obstacles, and should be able to complete USDAA Biathlon, UKI Masters/Champ, AKC Premier/ISC level courses.
