• You will continue to work progressively through additional jump grids inspired by Susan Salo. You will increase your dog’s confidence on the previous grids and introduce One-stride and Bending grids. If your dog is performing the foundation grids with stability and speed, we may incrementally interject some handler movement into your exercises. PREREQUISITE: Must have completed Intro to Jump Grids or instructor approval. PLEASE NOTE: The use of crates and crate games are a significant part of our curriculum. Both treat and toy rewards are used extensively to reinforce dogs for desired behaviors. During this workshop, dogs must use one of the following tools: A Gentle Leader Head Collar, an Easy-Walk Harness, a Sense-Ation Harness or a Freedom No-Pull Harness. No Prong Collars, Choke Collars or Flexi Leashes are allowed in our facility. 4-Week Class - 60 minutes CLASS BEGINS: Thursday, September 8th, 2022 at 6:15 pm
  • You will learn how to connect all of the “DOTS” (skills you learned in prerequisite classes) to help you and your dog maintain obstacle criteria, lateral distance, desire, and accuracy. You will work on small sequences that will link all of the skills you have learned thus far. You will improve your team’s relationship, understanding, confidence, speed, and overall agility performance. On successful completion of this course, you will be ready for Putting It All Together where you will learn and practice the details of the Derrett Handling System.
