NEW!!! – BeyondFoundations class
Yay, a new class! BEYOND Foundations class discusses Which line - Which move - And Why.
This class was created for all who finished Foundations, but then found Handling either too difficult - or don't have enough room/obstacles for it. For this class, you only need 1 tunnel and 6 jumps. Actually, even just 4 jumps alone will make it possible to run everything, broken in parts. It fills the gap between mastering Foundations and then transferring all those skills to a real course, choosing the best line for your dog in combination with the best handling move for you.
All the sequences in this class are taken from recent trials - that either I ran or we discussed in Graduates class. I on purpose picked those where there were many possible handling options - both on which move to choose and on which line to choose. We'll try various options on the same set up and you can then time them to see which one is fastest for your dog. We'll try all other options too, just to be ready for any challenge agility course can bring.
You will get a new sequence to run each week, together with a video where I show various options with my dogs and video comparisons in slow motion + analysis of what worked best etc. - and then you can try the same with your dog and post a video. We'll also discuss how to choose best and most efficient line and handling in trials, so you are welcome to send course maps from your trials/training that you want to discuss as well.
The class starts with the first sequence on August 26, but you can register and then enter the classroom already now. See you in class!
5 sequences, one each week = 5 weeks of feedback + 1 week of a catch up break in between
- 6 jumps (you can get away with just 4 as well), 1 tunnel
- appropriate for all dogs with basic foundations

Wohoo sounds perfect for Sum and I!!! We are at this point still working on mastering all the obstacles (and RC ofcourse 😉 starting soon again!), but already working on handling with Cik & cap sequences and some course training. But I find it (with such a fast dog) challenging to know which lines and crosses to use, so I was anticipating to start handling class after Sum knows all the obstacles 🙂 But hey this sounds way more perfect for us to do first!!!
Have you got any idear when next class will start? RC class and this class (and training weaves and raising bar with cik &cap) all at the same time (and also doing full time studying 😛 ) will be a bit too much ^^ haha.
But definitly sounds like a class just for us!! 😀
Yes, I think it’s great after-Foundations class! Next one will probably start in February.
I paid for Beyond foundations but it is not showing up as one of my classes. I also paid for RC and that is showing up.
It should be showing up now! 🙂
yep all good thanks
A good news !
I needed this kind of transition class since a while. I wasn’t confident enought with my handling to continue handling class and that is why I have suspend it for both Jimson and Garlic…
Yes, I think it should work much better with this class first, many people struggled going directly to Handling.
This sounds great! Wondering if there will be options for “slower” handlers as well?
Yes, we’ll certainly be working on “what IF” one ends behind, on wrong side etc., trying to be able to handle whatever needed many different ways!
I am so excited! This is exactly the class I have been dreaming of! Thank you Silvia! No more Long Way Laura!
Oh I wish I could do this Zae, sounds perfect <3
I hope you can join, I’m looking forward to see all the “old” students again!
oh I hope to too ! I have to see how much change I can scrape up before it starts… poor college student problems 😀
Cant enter classerom, but payment is ok..
I can’t seem to find your payment -- did you pay from another e-mail address?
I have received the mail confirmation and receipt .. But still no access? Can you SEE the payment now?
No, not under the name and e-mail that you are registered to this website. Please let me know the e-mail address you paid from or reply to confirmation mail you got, so I can see it there.
Thanks for adding this class , Sylvia . It’s just what I’ve been wanting . Can’t wait for class to start ! ☺
Ohhhh, perfect for me and Joy!! We have really some problems with handling and turns… I will pay now!!
See you in class!!
