Presenters: Diane Patterson and Holly Burchsted

Because of the amazing response to PICTURE This!, we are adding a second event!

Life Skills that translate easily to agility and other dogsports. Life Skills 2.0 will include different items from our first session (Jan. 6), and will include building engagement, opportunities to work on impulse control, environmental acclimation, distractions AND reading the signals your dog gives you. Just a few of the things that we feel are important to creating a confident, resilient puppy and YOU, too!

Appropriate for puppies and young dogs 10 weeks and up.

Limit 12 working teams, unlimited auditors. Multiple teams will work simultaneously, giving your dog an opportunity to begin learning to work with distractions. To set you pup up for success, we recommend you work on a name recall with your pup in advance.

$95 per workshop for working spots, $25 per day to audit.

Workshop hosted by The Agility Mindset (agilitymindset.com). Thank you to The Agility Facility for supporting these learning opportunities and for use of the facility!
