[AU-065] MaxPup 3 Agility Foundations: Putting It Together!

Continue to give your pup the best start in agility with amazing foundations! In this 3rd installment of the MaxPup series, we will focus on building handling and teamwork skills, as well as adding contact training games! Worried about limited space or bad weather? No problem! Each handling game will have a “full” format to play in larger spaces, as well as adaptations for playing in small spaces or at home! This class will give you an entire library of skills to help prepare for an amazing agility future.

All of these will be presented as fun games that stimulate your puppy’s mind without overworking her growing body. Get your puppy ready for an amazing career by teaching phenomenal foundations!

NEW FOR THIS SESSION: NextLevel Pup!

Is your teenager ready for higher level handling challenges? Ready to run longer sequences? Bring your youngster to the next level with our all new NextLevel Pup handling challenges and sequences!

Continue to expand your pup’s knowledge of handling skills, and get going with contact training! We will address a variety of contact training methods to get you on the road to amazing contacts. This class continues the fun we started in the first 2 MaxPup classes.

We will be focusing on building skills in 5 categories:

  • Wingin’ It! Complex handling sequences to build your skills, using just wings and tunnels!
  • Concept Transfers Taking your pup’s handling skills and installing them into sequences (low jumps and a tunnel)
  • Teeter Games A variety of games to build confidence and understanding of All.Things.Teeter!
  • Contact Foundations Flatwork games and board games to pump up your pup’s foundation for contacts (stopped and running – there will be games for each!)
  • NextLevel Pup Higher level handling challenges for the teenagers who are ready for more!
