January Running Contacts class, starting on January 10, 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 10, 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.

Can I just get the download link instead of the DVD? Where do I click for Paypal?
Yes of course. This is RC class page, but you can buy a download here: https://www.lolabuland.com/training-videos/running-contacts/ -- select 2nd payment option (blue button, saying “purchase now”).
Is there a way we can sign up to get notice when registration opens for the RC class in Mid-January?
If you follow me on Facebook or join Lolabuland Graduation page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/2136800446575530/ you will certainly see it there!
