This seminar is the first step to start sequencing for young dogs and for anyone who wants to learn to build a strong obstacle commitment and get a better understanding of the three C’s in practice. You will learn some of the basic handling techniques to get through the sequences and learn useful skills for the future. Dogs should be familiar with jumps and tunnels. No prior OneMind Dogs experience is necessary! The jump bars will beappropriately set for the dog’s size and age. We recommend this seminar for young dogs, minimum of 7 months.
This seminar is open to all levels/teams, however, this is not a foundation seminar. Your team should have a solid agility foundation and be able to sequence 5-8 obstacles. Your team does not need to be proficient on all obstacles, though all obstacles may be included on the course. Participants will walk the course with Megan, discussing the dog's line, the handler's running points, and the different handling options for each sequence. Teams will have equal time during their turns to work through the sequences/courses at their own pace. Each team's training time will be individualized to their needs.
Joining in discussions * Walking and analyzing the courses * Observing a variety of different dog and handler teams as they learn and progress throughout the seminar * Access to OneMind Dogs lessons/curriculum
