Welcome to Agility for Newcomers course, I hope you enjoy it and it sets you and your dog on the right paw with your agility venture. Whether its for fun or you'd like to compete, safety is paramount.
With agility becoming more and more popular, lots of shops are now starting to sell equipment cheaply and with no instructions on how to set up and train your dog. So this is where this course comes in. I will show you how to set your equipment up, with the correct spacing between each obstacle. How high your dog should be jumping, when they are old enough too. No dog should be jumping full height agility jumps until they are at least a year old.
I will also show you how to train your dog to use the contact equipment (dog walk, see-saw, A-Frame) and discuss the different methods of training weaves. I will also show you how to use channel weaves so your dog will be able to do them independently.
Also there is the all important gridwork that they must start off with when learning agility and wen we practice our contacts we only need to use a contact trainer, which I also show you how to make.
Who this course is for:
- Pet dog owners who would like to start agility
- Agility Beginners
- Anybody who has shop bought equipment and wants to know how to use it correctly and safetly
