Running Contacts class now open!
January Running Contacts class, starting on January 11, is now open for registration! Most work is done with no equipment and just a mat: working on turns, soft turns, straight exits, and various handling before any DW work, so you don't need much room to start off.
Here are some graduation videos of dogs from the previous classes. I chose different sizes and only those who started from zero so you can see how far they got in less than 4 months:
The class is appropriate for total beginners (from 7 months old on), retrains from 2on2off and all who have running contacts already (even if not trained with a mat), but want to work on various exits or any other aspect of RC - all the feedback is completely individual, so all levels are welcome. I will also publish all the lessons right at the start of the class, so you can continue from wherever you currently are.
Minimum age for this class is 7 months and the minimum equipment is now just the DVD + a mat - like a towel or a doormat - and later on occasional access to a dog-walk, ideally one that can be lowered.
This class is 12 weeks long (+2 weeks of a catch up break in between) and starts on January 11, but you can register already now and then enter the classroom HERE.
Please note that only those who took this class with the SAME dog before qualify as repeaters!Please make sure your are registered and logged in before you proceed to paying with paypal - this will ensure you will get your correct access automatically.

I’ve already learn RC with my 15 months old BC, Ripley, but it’s not really good, not really definite, sometimes it’s good and sometimes he jumps the contact, so I want to try with you.
I’ve the old DVD, is it important to get the new one?
Yes, the new DVD is needed as it’s very different from the old one… I’m sure it will help with getting consistency too!
it’s been a while since the last rca class. Lino and I finally took off into the games and doing pretty good. My handling is getting better. but RC’s success has dropped recently. So, I’m thinking about repeating RC class.Is it different from the RC class 2 years ago?
Very happy to hear about the progress!!! And yes, it’s still the same class, so you are a repeater and in the Advanced section.
I’ve subscribe to your RC classe with DVD, how can I download it
I had an off-line day today, but I’ve sent you the link now 🙂
