Developing Young Agility Talent… Setting Goals & Having Fun!
This weekend I will be hosting something that I am pretty sure has never been done in the agility world before. It is a three-day seminar with 8 agility handlers (most of which have been extremely successful in agility with past dogs) and the entire three days will be live streamed. Now, none of that may be particularly revolutionary, especially for us because we have been live streaming dog training for six years now! However, what’s different is all that we have planned for our online audience… and don’t be worried if you are not around to see this live… we have made it possible for all of our subscribers to have access to all three days of the seminar for an entire month!
Here is why this workshop will be so unique; first of all the mic I will be wearing as I teach will be piped directly into the live stream audience so you can hear every word I say while I’m teaching.
Next, we have a dedicated live stream host… Dr. Christine Boisvert is one of our most experienced Say Yes instructors and is rearranging her own classes in order to be the “colour commentator” for our on screen community.
Christine is no stranger to our students as she has been an instructor with us for ten years now. In addition, she is an accomplished agility competitor in her own right having represented Canada at the AKC Invitational with her first agility dog Riesling, a Doberman Pinscher.
This weekend’s focus for the young dogs participating is:
1) Evaluate the foundational elements of each of those 8 young dogs coming to the workshop.
2) Introduce brand new skills… these are things I have never shared before. I always have new ideas and after I “experiment” with my own dogs I love sharing them with others… get ready… I’ve been saving up several for this weekend!
3) Create a strategic train plan to take these young dogs right up to being ready to step into the agility ring.

Explore brand new ways to teach start line stays, a brand new way to go about teaching turns, as well as brand new jump grids and body awareness exercises, and of course as always, exciting handling skill sets to help stretch these young dogs’ minds! Here is a sneak peek into some of the activities planned for the weekend!
Today I am grateful for Christine for taking time out of her busy schedule to be a part of this special weekend here at Say Yes!
