Total Teamwork: Sure, you have trained all of the obstacles and practiced all the fancy handling moves, but have you taken time to really focus on those Non-agility agility skills that factor into your team’s success in the ring? These are the fine details that many off us gloss over because we don’t directly see their impact on our performance, but they are what keeps good teams from becoming great teams.
What's My Line? Can you predict your dog's path and know how to affect it so he takes the lines you want on course? This is an integral part of making handling decisions and being a proactive handler. In this class, you will make discoveries as to your dog's natural paths and how you can manipulate the lines to take out off course options and allow your dog to run at optimal speed.
Help! My Dog is Faster Than I Am! Do you ever feel like there are places on courses that are impossible for you to handle because you simply can’t get there? We don't have to run like Usain Bolt to be successful! Most likely, you CAN get there if are able to perform obstacles at a greater distance, trust your dog’s ability to read a line of jumps or have well defined verbal cues. These are a few of the topics we will cover in this class designed to help you remain “ahead” of your dog (in terms of handling proactively) and able to tackle courses with more confidence in your ability.
Just 4 Jumps: Do you have a small training space and room for just a few jumps? Only have a few minutes to train every day? Don’t despair! 4 Jumps is all you really need keep your handling skills sharp! Lori shares a set-up each week with multiple drills designed to fine-tune your skills and teamwork with your dog.
Super Starts: The success of any run depends greatly on how well you start as a team with your dog. Does your dog pull you into the ring? Have you been struggling for better start-line stays? Do you wish your dog would drive off the start with more focus and speed? Do you feel restricted in your handling options in different start-line scenarios? If so, this class will help you identify specific areas you can improve your teamwork with your dog and start off on the right foot (or paw) in competition.
BadAss Blind Crosses: As courses are getting faster, the need for the handler to keep in constant forward motion increases. The answer? Developing badass blind cross skills! Lori introduces various types of blind crosses that can be applied anywhere from Novice to International competition. As importantly as learning when and where to apply blind crosses, this class also discusses when other types of crosses may be a better option.
MORE Badass Blind Crosses!
You asked for it, here it is! Lori's initial Badass Blind Cross class introduced students to the basics of when, where and how. This class continues where we left off and challenges participants to expand their blind cross comfort zone by applying them in longer sequences. Equipment needed is 7 jumps and a tunnel. The training space we use will be no larger than 50' by 70', but don't be fooled, there will be PLENTY of running!
Flatwork FUNdamentals: Handling is all about defining a clear, common language using a combination of motion, body and verbal cues to communicate with our dogs on course. Do you have a puppy or young dog you want to get started on the right track for future success? Have you come to the realization that there are some gaps in how you and your dog communicate that you need to address? Searching for a low-impact way of keeping your skills sharp when you cannot run full courses or sequences due to injury or lack of training space? If any of these apply to you (and it most likely does), then this is the class you cannot miss!
Power-packed Small Sequences: Do you have a small space and need som inspiration for training exercises? The solution is this class containing challenges designed to keep your teamwork sharp on exercises for all levels, including distance and snooker-type skills. Lori's Small Sequences class uses 4-5 jumps and a tunnel in smaller spaces. Space necessary is between 40-50 by 50-60 feet.
Which Way is Faster? In this class, Lori offers 6 exercises where there are a variety of choices in dog path and handling options. Which way is fastest for you and your dog? Take this class to find out and see what was fastest for all of the participants!
