Beyond Foundations class has an important change - it's on "open registration" now, meaning that the class will never close and you can run the sequences and post them at any time you want.
https://NEW!!! - BeyondFoundations online class Trailer
BEYOND Foundations class discusses Which line - Which move - And Why. This class is appropriate for all who have basic Foundations skills. You only need 1 tunnel and 6 jumps. Actually, even just 4 jumps alone will make it possible to run everything, broken in parts. This class is handling-focused - we'll be focusing on how to choose 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.
There are 5 different sequences, each with various options for handling and the lines you can choose - I show all options with my dogs, with video comparisons in slow motion + analysis of what worked best etc. 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.
You can join and end this class any time you want - it stays open for ever, so you can register now, enter the classroom and post any time you want.

Oooh! This looks so awesome! Raafi has been doing really awesome this year but we’re trying to find some ways to get his times down and find the most efficient root around the course. This is perfect!
Yes, that should work perfectly! Looking forward to see many of “old” students again!
Would this be a good course for having two dogs in? I find I am handling my two dogs the same even though they have two very different speeds and strengths.
Yes, I found it very interesting to compare two different dogs! I started with To and Le ie. my best and worst turning dog 🙂 -- but got similar results as they both have good accelerations -- so then switched to To and Bu -- very different results!
that minimum age should have the dog for this class?
There is no minimum age, but the dog should know the basics already, so I guess they can’t be under 9 months or so.
Any idea when you’ll be running this course next, Silvia?
After next Foundations… -- so normally February.
Can’t wait for the new class to begin! 😀 This is a very interesting course 🙂
It is! I really loved watching comparisons videos!
there is a new class ‘Beyond foundations’ after this foundation class ?
No, next Beyond will be after next Extreme, so end of October.
Suzie and I was in October’s Foundation class, but we couldn’t complete Lesson 5 & 6 (we have just started doing these lessons again). Do you think we can sing on this class?
Thank you in advance.
Yes, I think it should be o.k. If rear crosses will be too hard, we can just skip them for now and focus on other handling options.
do you think I could do this class with only a space of 20mx10m?
Yes, definitely. It would help if you have a short straight tunnel so it doesn’t take too much room.
Oh great! I have got a 4m tunnel and my jumps are small to. Build for s/m dogs.
The we´ll see us in december. I´m very much looking forward to this!
That should work yes!
Could I do this course with a deaf dog, or would he find it too challenging/does it focus too much on verbal cues?
That should work yes! This course doesn’t focus on verbals at all.
