TOPICS

SOLVE IT! : R+ PROBLEM SOLVING FOR AGILITY DOGS

Tunnels seem so simple, but ultimately, they are the hardest to predict our dog's path out of them! This session will focus on cueing different exits of tunnels and being able to predict your dog's line as they exit the tunnel. Avoid tunnel "blackouts" and know exactly how to set your dog's line to the correct end of the tunnel, cue a variety of tunnel exits, and maintain your connection through the tunnel! Technique training will be broken down for any level, as long as they know the tunnel! Sequences can be made longer/shorter depending on experience level. Only jumps and tunnels will be used.

COURSEWORK TRAINING

Ready to put all your skills together on one course? Take your team to your next level with this coursework seminar! This seminar puts all of the building blocks together and applies it to full courses. Megan spends the majority of the morning working with handlers only, focusing on their strategy and technique before bringing the dogs onto the course. Oftentimes, coursework training has a specific themethat Megan focuses on with her students, providing a deeper insight into applying certain techniques and proofing their effectiveness on course.

WARNING!!! Megan's seminar's are educational in nature!!  Be prepared to advance both your skills and understanding of coursework, teamwork with your dog and an overall understanding of all the components of the session materials.

VIRTUAL SEMINAR FORMAT

We will do our absolute best to make this virtual seminar feel just like the real thing. Megan will create pre-recorded lecture material that all seminar participants will watch together, likely in pieces. After each segment, there will be a Q&A, and then all working participants will get to work their dogs, in front of the camera, with Megan watching live via Zoom. Megan will provide feedback throughout the training session, just as she would in person!

Teams will get equal time to work through each segment of material.

It is very important that your working time is filmed as well - if technology fails and for some reason Megan is unable to provide feedback live, you will get your feedback recorded and made available to you at the end of the seminar day.

PLEASE NOTE:

We will begin each day at 9am, and we will take as long as it takes to make it through the material. Our hope is that we are finished around 5pm, like normal, but be prepared that this format may take more or less time than a typical seminar day.

You will have access to the PDF Lecture Notes, and the feedback.

You may not record the lecture materials.

Auditing includes invaluable benefits! They include:

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

Can't attend? Megan will be returning to Redline in October for in-person seminars!
