Do you have a hard time getting discriminations?
Can your direct your dog to the correct obstacle when there are two obstacles close together?
Many classes in agility have discriminations. It can be a tunnel contact discrimination, two tunnels or even two different obstacles. In this class, we will go over the steps to teach your dog consistent discriminations. This class will go over how to train for consistent, fast and independent discriminations. With each lesson, I will go over when to cue and what cues to direct your dog through the sequence.We will discuss your cues. What are you cues? Are they consistent? When does the cue need to happen? Are you on time? Late?
Step by step instructions, videos and assignments are given. Multiple videos with different dogs will be shown including her young pup Inspire.During this class, you will see videos of Inspire learning discriminations from the start! So you will see the very beginning stages of training as he learns these skills.This class will start with the groundwork exercises to teach discriminations without equipment and move on to working with hoops/jumps, tunnels, and contacts.
There will be discussion threads to ask questions and post video for review. Everyone is a participant. Each class is broken into sections with one or more lessons within each section. You can post ONE short 1-2 min video per section for instructional review.
Each section will post to the site every 7 days.The course is open for video submission, questions, review and comments for 90 days after the first day of class - access to material lasts for 1 yr.
