Agility From The Ground Up: Mini-Course 1 (AG1)
Welcome to Agility From the Ground Up, a series of classes beginning with the fundamentals. Or… think of it as a circle of enthusiasts who are committed to learning the many aspects of the sport while helping their dogs excel. The pressure is off and the fun is on!
All classes and instruction given are based on the science of animal learning. Behaviors are build step-by-step using reinforcement as well as the use of a marker (clicker).
Dates & Times: Saturday June 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th, July 2nd and 9th from 8-9am
Up The Ante – The Next Step in Training
We all want our dogs to not only sit and lie down when ask to do so, but to remain in a sit or a down for a period of time. And how about being able to take a leash walk with our dog comfortably hanging around our side instead of pulling us all over the place? And here is an all time favorite: Having our dog ignore the trash found on the road, a rabbit, another dog being walked, etc. when we ask to do so. All this is possible if we commit to training our dogs for success. Up the Ante is a short, action packed 4- week class where we will hone our skills so that we can help our dogs give us longer sit/stays or down/stays, walk more politely on leash as well as a more solid leave it.
Dates: Tuesdays, June 14th, 21st and 28th, 2016
Get ready and let us do the training, so that you can enjoy your dog!
About Almudena Ortiz Cue, M.A. CTC, CPDT-KA, Tellington TTouch Practitioner:
I am a graduate of the renowned San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers, a national certified professional dog trainer (CPDT) by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and the owner of C.H.A.C.O. Dog Training & Behavior Consulting, LLC. located in the Santa Fe, NM area. I am also a certified Tellington TTouch® Practitioner for Companion Animals.
As a staff trainer for two years at the Tony La Russa Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) in Walnut Creek, CA, I worked with under-socialized dogs who had experienced lengthy shelter stays or scored poorly on the SAFER test. I utilized training designed both to improve the lives of the dogs while at the shelter and to prepare them for successful adoptions. I also designed and implemented the shelter's first Dog Training Internship Program (Dog TIP).
