Confused about germans and ketschkers? Muddled by threadles and backside of jumps? The Agility Skills Workbook provides all the answers!
Handling in agility is becoming increasingly sophisticated as dog and handler teams strive to complete ever more technical courses in the fastest possible time. The range of handling moves can appear daunting but, with the correct groundwork and guidance, learning can be both logical and effective.
In the Agility Skills Workbook, authors Connie Sellers-Lane and Michelle Waugh have devised a series of dedicated exercises for each handling skill, which include:
- Tight and loose turns
- Backside of jumps
- Tunnel skills
Each exercise starts with the basics, develops the skill, and then proofs it so both dog and handler have a complete understanding of what is required. Photo sequences illustrate exactly what to do, and detailed diagrams give step-by-step guidance. Finally, there is a series of full course plans especially designed to test all the handling skills you have acquired.
Easy to follow, and packed full of valuable training advice, the Agility Skills Workbook puts positive learning at the forefront and provides that rock-solid foundation that is the key to future success.
