Mike Lifer PhotographyThis class is designed for dogs that are currently competing to expand their jumping skills. Advanced drills from the upcoming Mastering Jumping Skills (MJS) Volume 2 such as collection grids, extension to collection transition drills, convergence, slicing, expansion/contraction drills etc will be included. These drills are intended for dogs competing at masters level or above. Situations that commonly cause bars to fall will be included. All dogs are welcome, although some drills will not be as challenging for small dogs.

Six jumps and 2 tunnels, plus MJS Vol 1 are required. The dog MUST be competent at one jump skills in MJS Vol 1 Chapter 6 before class begins. Dogs will be expected to have these basic skills. Many drills can fit in 40X60′ space but some require more like 40X80′. Most drills can be modified if your space is too small, but not all. Approximately 30 drills will be covered; some drills are progressive meaning a less intense version is presented first to be sure the basic skills are in place and that drill is followed by a more advanced version.

Note: This class requires considerable handler running.
