Spring 2020 Online Learnings:

March 19, 2020: Keep your agility education going while you can’t get out with weekly Agility Mindset online classes. Classes can be purchased pay as you go ($30 per class), or in a bulk payment (6 classes – contact me for pricing), to help smooth out your financial needs.

What you’ll get:
Weekly skills/drills, courses and instruction via a private FB page. I’ve used this format successfully for other classes, and it’s easy to navigate and communicate. Each video you post gets commentary, review and suggestions from me. Very thorough review, did I mention that 😉 ? You won’t get a sentence or two, I pride myself on giving solid, actionable information to help you grow.

Spring 2020 Courses include:

Pup-Gility: Foundation skills on the flat for young dogs and dogs starting agility. Before doing “all the things” on equipment, do all the things on the flat that will build your relationship with your dog … Play, Instilling Confidence and Independence, Thinking games, Rewards (doing it properly), Engagement, and teaching skills to play the agility game of chase.

Skills and Sequences: For dogs that have had some agility training, and are growing their skills to be ready for competition. Classes take YOUR needs into consideration, and offer a smorgasbord of learning that includes specific handling skills, tips for training contacts, shorter sequences to use skills that are demonstrated in the online class. It’s a perfect class for “tweeners,” and retrains.

Masters Handling: Course-work that uses full courses. If you don’t have the equipment for full course, no worries! Breaking the course down into short sequences is fine. Get your dog out and running, and get my eyes and expertise onto your team.

Peak performance and an Agility Mindset

At Agility Mindset, you’ll find support for your understanding of the power that resides within YOU, and encouragement to give it permission to succeed. Agility Mindset helps unlock the blocks with actionable, reliable methods. Practicing success, therefore, becomes a habit, as much as practicing a front cross.

The foundation of peak performance begins with the bond between you and your canine teammate, so, that’s where we start. I’ll show you ways to create a thinking, responsive dog that is connected to you through games, life skills and fun. And, with an improved bond, you’ll be better prepared to build drive, connection and commitment, whether your dog is a puppy or adult.

Every new level you reach requires you to see things in a different way. Only you can Make It Happen.

Mental games (the negative kind) take aim at sabotaging your success. As your mindset mentor, I’ll listen to you, and provide constructive critique and honest assessment. No sugar coating. We’ll work to correct your alignment and body geometry, and support effective movement patterns to support your dog’s understanding.

Preparation, visualization, options for handling, connection and teamwork are ways to support your goals, and are methods that I’ve used for my own success, and will help you discover for yours.

Studying various handling methodologies helps me to be the “specialist” you see when you have a specific issue to improve.  I’m happy to be your full-time coach, though, if that is what your plan needs.

Look for a trainer, system or organization that:

  • Is open to handling or training options.
  • Recommends methods that fosters your growth.
  • Supports your needs and concerns.
  • Focuses on YOU, gives you adequate time in training, and is supportive in competition settings.
  • Encourages you to step outside your comfort zone.
  • Provides education opportunities outside their regular schedule.
  • Puts a premium on your success – by helping you understand the rules of organizations, how to compete, and encourages you in ways to be healthy, grounded and ready.
  • Is there for you …. in class, in competition, in understanding.
