Foundations May – now open! :)
This long-awaited class is opening today! 🙂 We'll be starting with the first homework on May 19, but you can register and enter the classroom already now to check out pre-homework 🙂 - and look around the classroom!
Our major focus will be teaching great cik&cap in order to get tight turns, great distance skills, sends, extension and collection all at the same time, putting it in sequences to make it even more fun for the dogs and to practice some basic handling. We'll also be addressing speed&motivation issues and start with weaves, see-saw and contacts. Since all the feedback is completely personalized, it's appropriate for all levels - we had everybody puppies to World Team members in this class.
We'll address all the topics addressed in Foundations video + see-saw and weaves:
WARNING: unlike in previous classes, we'll be sticking to max. 10 minutes of videos per lesson (in total that means 60 min in 12 weeks of the class) and to sending/discussing contacts only when those lessons are out (so in 2nd and 6th lesson - all together for 4 weeks).
Minimum age at the beginning of the class is 6 months, minimal equipment needed: 3 jumps, a tunnel and Foundations DVD. Agility Diary is recommended, but not requested. Appropriate for all levels, from total beginners to experienced dogs who could use better turns, more independence or speed. The class has 6 lessons, one every 2 weeks = 12 weeks of feedback (+ 2 weeks of a catch-up break in between).

My dog will be almost 7 months when the course starts. Is she too young?
That’s o.k.! 6 months is the minimum age.
I’m interested in your foundations class, but I’m already taking the puppy class and worry that starting another class halfway through will be too much? Puppy is just 6 months old, which I see is the minimum. Or do you think you’ll have another foundations class later in the year?
Next Foundations will start mid-October, so you can as well wait for that one. There are several people doing both now, so it’s possible, but since he is still so young, it’s no problem to wait till October and just focus on tricks and play till then.
To register, do I just go to paypal? I am not seeing where to select this class. Thanks, Jean
Yes, just click on one of the three Paypal bottoms -- they’re all for this class.
Hi Silvia, would it be too late to do the foundations repeater course? I have been away and missed the start. I did the last one but was unable to finish it. Thank you, Nicole.
Sure, you can still join!
Great thank you
