For the past week or so I’ve been trying something new. It’s no secret that I love playing games with my dogs and I love seeing dogs learn through games. There’s a lot of dog training information that I’ve wanted to share with you that I’m confident you would be interested in, so I thought … “why don’t I teach the dog training with a game for people?!”. And that’s what we are doing right now. It’s a first for us (a first for anyone online).
Here’s a quick video I put together to let everyone know what we are doing. Not only do we want you to enjoy the game and the dog training, it’s you who help us make things better and better, and it’s you who inspire us to keep trying new things.
Whether you’re interested in playing the game or you just want the education, it does not matter, we would love you to be part of this new adventure online (it’s free and everyone is welcome).
Here’s an overview of what we have for you so far and you can easily access everything via the Agility Play Page … there’s more coming, and it is relevant even if you don’t do agility.
Two in-depth “Mastery Insights” sessions, with two more to come.
Mastery Insights #1 – We look at the 5 commonalities of the TOP agility dogs in the world. The real learning from this is determining your “agility blind spots” (that are also strengths!). The insights can be applied to anything you do with your dog to protect your confidence and your dog’s too.
Mastery Insights #2 – This is all about dog training and creating clean cues. There are a lot of ‘new’ insights in this video and I shared a snippet of a video conversation that I had with my mentor, Bob Bailey, earlier in the week about adding cues to behaviours. It appears that the brief 2-minute exchange between Bob and I has blown a few minds out there!
Extra Facebook Lives (Recorded)
These are recorded and will be on the Agility Play Page for you asap after we are live. There’s more to come!
Live Recording #1: All about mindset and for all we do with our dogs, not just agility. You will learn why “collecting your crap” is a GREAT thing to do, and also how to create a “Vision Board” (and a big shout out to everyone who has embraced this, there has been some amazing sharing).
Live Recording #2: This Live follows on from Mastery Insights #2 and my conversation snippet with Bob Bailey. We look at Cue Creation ~ Adding the Pause. No matter what you do with your dog, this learning can be applied.
Live Recording #3: All about how our agility dogs decide what obstacle to take next when on course! This is a ‘must watch’ if you do agility.
Short Focused Pro Tips
NEW videos on “Transfer of Value”, “The Arousal Curve” and the “5C Formula for Success” … the fundamentals of dog training.
An encore of “Tater – The Backside Jump Foundation Sessions” from the VIA Summit. In Mastery Insights #2, Tater joins us as demo dog again along with Momentum.
It’s all on the Agility Play Page for you, and we would love for you to join us for the dog training learning.
Today I am deeply grateful for everyone joining in, seeing the potential, embracing something new and taking on the learning!
Love this game. I myself am playing catch up. My tip for those just starting is keep going. You can do it.
Just started catching up on these agility workshops, was blown away by the new concept of when the best time to add the cue, so honoured to have access via Susan to Bob Bailey! I am new to agility, have done 3 beginner classes, which Cloud (my 5 year old Hovawart) and myself are loving and cannot wait to start applying some of what you are teaching. I am a late starter to agility and running will not be my strong point! I love the Tater training and would really like to re-watch what you did with him in the Autumn and the cone training, is that possible?
Hi Sue! Thanks so much for joining in. You can find the “Tater” sessions from 2018 on the Agility Play Page, just scroll down a little bit and look for the screencap of Tater’s video, click on it, and it will take you to review.
Finally late at nite I am catching up on the live video recordingsJyst finished the frustration one Also want to say it is a must to watch more than once! And I have to say a huge Thankyou to Susan and team You have no idea how much this is helping Westie Kalani and me!!!!Best regards, Lois Ronis and Westie Kalani
I just binged watched all the videos. Great information – I won’t be doing agility although Kibou would be great but lots of insights for my general Recallers training❤️
Hi h360 team. I am participating in your online game. I must have signed up twice with the same email.
Hi Agnes, send a note to us at [email protected] and we will help with the emails. We appreciate you joining in!
I really like how you’ve taken your approach in games for dogs, and have applied it for people. We all really do learn better when having fun. This has been an excellent experience!
Super note, thank you, Brent! It’s great to have you and your boy joining in with the fun.
