Agility Foundation Class PDF Print E-mail

Pre- requisite for all classes – one time only Orientation night – 2 hour seminar
2 family members are welcome and strongly recommended to attend for a one – time only fee of $40 + GST per family. This 2 hour seminar will include canine communication, learning theory, leadership habits, destructive behavior solutions, house training and crate training tips.

This Foundation Class is for dogs of all ages and teaches the skills needed before moving on to the focused obstacle training in the Basic Agility Class (BA). This class will give your dog the right start in Agility or can also be a great refresher for dogs already active in Agility but needing to fix some “holes” in their foundation by going back to a few basics.

Agility Foundation training will teach your dog to focus and be attentive while other dogs are moving, playing or running. You will work with your dog to perfect the stay and recall work that is required for the Beginner Agility class. You will learn basic groundwork such as how to cue your dog to move and turn with you. Clicker training will be introduced and explained.

Dogs in this class will not be working on all the pieces of equipment but will become familiar with obstacles designed to promote balance and coordination skills. The Foundation Class will create an even stronger working relationship between dog and handler and will incorporate fun "training games" to promote learning through play. Have fun with your dog while teaching the basics of the sport of Agility.

Prerequisites: Dogs must have basic obedience skills in place.

This class is a pre-requisite to ALL other Superdog Spectrum Agility Classes.

Pre- requisite for all classes – one time only Orientation night – 2 hour seminar
2 family members are welcome and strongly recommended to attend for a one – time only fee of $40 + GST per family. This 2 hour seminar will include canine communication, learning theory, leadership habits, destructive behavior solutions, house training and crate training tips.

Developing a Strong Foundation: Dogs and handlers learn basic skills needed for success in Agility. "Flat work", away from the obstacles, is emphasized in order to train basic moves and turns. Handlers learn how to keep the dog focused in the presence of other dogs, how to motivate their dog, and how to teach a reliable "wait" command needed for Agility.

You and your canine partner will begin the steps to developing a strong foundation not only for Agility but for other canine sports as well. During this class you will develop the groundwork necessary for jumps, weave poles, correct contact performance, target training and much more. Dogs will work on and off leash.

Graduation from this class is a prerequisite for all agility classes.

Putting It All Together: Dog/handler teams learn simple sequencing of obstacles. We will stress effective communication of commands from the handler and the development of focus and responsiveness in the dogs. The goal is to prepare the dog and handler for the more advanced levels of agility. Full courses will be run occasionally but the intent of these sessions is to help you perfect your execution of smaller sequences in order to facilitate your fluid handling when you get to run a full course.

Obstacle heights will be raised. Emphasis will be placed on handling skills and sequencing. Teams must be working contacts at full height, have a good start line wait and be able to work off leash without visiting others to advance from this class.

Pre-requisites: Teams must have completed Basic Athlete & Novice Athlete or be able to show an understanding of work on the flat, targeting, and knowledge of all obstacles at lower heights and be working free from distraction.
