Dogs should be competent on all obstacles at full height and weaving. Classes will consist mainly of sequences and courses. The different AAC games will also be explained and run so that handlers understand the rules.
ADVANCED AGILITY (6 x 1 hour classes, maximum 6 dogs per class): In this course, the students will learn to analyze a course and read the dog’s lines so that they can make the best handling choices for their dog. They will also learn new skills and perfect their existing skills to make their handling efficient and clear.
