= 12 weeks of feedback + 2 weeks of a break in between
- minimal equipment needed: 4 jumps, 2 tunnels, Foundations Revisited DVD, channel and see-saw (if working on weaves&see-saw as well)
- appropriate for all levels, total beginners to experienced dogs who could use better turns, more independence or speed
The class follows Foundations Revisited DVD. This is why the format has been changed after the original Foundations Fun format:
What is different is the order, the emphasis, and the exercises and I also added some new topics, so the transition to Xtreme Foundations should be super smooth - this class certainly doesn't lack in providing MANY challenges. And definitely covers many topics!
This class is appropriate for all levels, from total beginners from 7 months on - and also for experienced agility dogs - I promise to keep everybody challenged!!! All feedback completely individual.
Minimum equipment needed: 2 tunnels, 4 jumps and if you want to work on see-saw and weaves as well: see-saw and stick to the ground and/or channel weaves (ideally both!). + Foundations Revisited DVD of course.
Topics covered: play, fetching, static toys, stays, restrains, warm ups and cool downs, tight turns, sends, pushes, threadles and serpentines, come to hand, verbal discrimination, obstacle discrimination, tunnel sends, traps and turns (hard and soft turns), extension and collection, different crosses and handling, see-saw, weaves, tire, long, double and wall jump, how to choose sequences and adjust them to your dog, how to handle mistakes and more.
Next class starts on April 20, so check back for registration on April 5th.
Some graduation videos examples:
Video length limitation per lesson is 10 minutes per lesson (in total that means 60 min in 12 weeks of the class).
The class has 6 lessons, one every 2 weeks = 12 weeks of feedback (+ 3 weeks of a catch-up break in between).

I have sent you an email. I paid for this class today but forgot to login first. Can you please add me to it? I have the payment details in the email.
All fixed, should work now!
Oops! I have just signed up for the foundation course without login first. Very sorry for the hassle!!
Hi silvia , I’m in time to partecipate..?
You can still join yes!
Dear Silvia, I have dog, just completed level A1. 17 month old. Could i join yours class just now, in order do not loosing time till October?
Yes, you can actually still join. But you did lose some weeks of feedback by now…
I would like to do the Foundation Class that starts in October but unable to pay the participants and video -- it only comes up for paying for Auditor. Is it too early to get into this class?
Yes -- registration only opens end of September, so check back then!
Hi, I contacted you via “contact me” at the bottom of the page then found my answer….
I’m guessing the best place to start is with the Foundations class that is starting 19th October…..
I’m loving watching the videos and looking forward to getting started….
Thank you very much,
Yes, that’s right -- October Foundations would be the best place to start. See you in class! 🙂
on september 28, I’m going to register for the foundations with Nanou, I hope you get him to run, because the moment he does nothing in the agility class, home does he quite like the RC but he at school nothing like,
He looks GREAT on his DW now!!! So I’m sure we can make tunnels and jumps and weaves just as much fun!
Just wondering when the next Foundations class will be after this October class?
Probably end of March.
I have paid for the foundation class and I was logged in, but can’t seem to get in to the classroom? Maybe because my Paypal is under a different e-mail?
Not sure why that happened then -- but all fixed now, so it should work now.
Oops, nevermind. I figured it out…
