ONLINE CLASSES



2019 In The Zone Distance Training Group 

Would you like to increase your distance skills? Are you having a hard time with classes with lines (Chances, FAST, Jackpot, Gamblers)? Are you interested in doing bigger distance such as distance challenges or bonus’? Are you ready to push for more distance? Each month I will post a setup with various sequences to practice. I will post training sessions with my dogs running the sequences. I will post videos of teaching my pup Inspire distance. You can see how I train distance with a young dog as well as how I handle bigger distances with my advanced dogs. With each setup, I will go over when to cue and what cues to direct your dog through the sequence. We will discuss your cues. What are you cues? Are they consistent? When does the cue need to happen? Are you on time? Going to be a great class if you want to increase your distance skills. You may submit a 5 min video per month of video for review and comment. This class is hosted through facebook group.

Every agility venue has a class that requires distance skills. Whether it is Fast, Gamblers Chances or Jackpot, you are required to work away from your dog. Additionally, being able to work away from your dog opens up many handling options for any agility class or venue. There are many elements to distance training and I have broken them down into specific classes to work specific skills. We start out with the groundwork for distance class. In this class, we go over foundation skills to teach distance and cues! After this class, we have different classes to teach forward distance, lateral distance and layering, directionals at a distance, distance off of contacts and then put the skills together in a Distance Challenge Class.
