In 2017 Linda will be offering several two-day jumping workshops. The workshops will cover material derived from Mastering Jumping Skills Volumes 1 &2. Topics include fundamentals of jumping that all agility handlers should benefit from with an overview of the jumping skills required in agility, leads, foundation jump training that promotes thoughtful, clean jumping, and training of multiple jumping skills with discussion of how these skills relate to handling (from MJS Vol 1). Jumping problems plus selected advanced jumping drills, and how they are used to improve performance (MJS Vol 2), will also be covered.
The format will be lecture/demo. There will be no “working” spots; however, participants will be encouraged to volunteer their dogs for the drills they may be suitable for. There may be opportunities for dogs of all levels to participate, from 6 mos to seasoned pro.
Mastering Jumping Skills is highly recommended. Information specific to each location will be posted in the Announcements Board on this Forum.
