This module introduces the a-frame and using speed to your advantage.
In this 3-week module, part of our Beginning Agility Skills Series, you will learn how to change your running speed to help your dog predict what comes next on the agility course. This module also introduces the a-frame obstacle, so your dog will learn about climbing new surfaces and body awareness for safe entries and exits.
Prior to starting an agility class your dog should be relaxed enough to eat treats in the class environment. This means that after your dog eats the treat, he is excited to ask you for more rather than look for other options available. Puppies and dogs with physical challenges are welcome to take the class – activities will be adjusted to give an appropriate amount of physical challenge.
