Intro to Distance Agility

Intro to Distance Agility will start teaching dogs and handlers to run with more distance between each other on an agility course.

Using drills and short courses, this class will focus on strengthening the dog's confidence so they may work farther away from their handler while running a course. The handler will also gain more confidence that the dog WILL work successfully away from them.

Dogs and handlers should have completed Intro to Agility and be comfortable with all of the equipment. They should be able to perform a simple course sequence reasonably well. They must be able to work off leash (tab collar OK).

In this course you will solidify the foundation skills to distance agility including barrels, front crosses, switch/turn, go/get, come/here and start minimizing vocabulary. You will also learn many helpful topics for competition including agility rules, leash management, pre-run routine and more. These skills are a necessity to order to advance in NADAC, but will also improve performance in other venues such as AKC, USDAA, CPE, etc.

Pre-requisite skills for this class are:

  • Completion of at least one novice class
  • Reliable recall
  • Ability to perform at least 5 obstacles in sequence
  • Ability to perform all obstacles off-leash
  • Ability to complete weaves with at most one side of gates

In order to take classes at Smarty Paws, you must bring your dog's up to date shot records and negative fecal exam from within the last 6 months.

This is a continuous class and is punch card only. Please discuss with Todd if this level would be appropriate for you. If you are unsure when the class is occurring you may check our calendar and verify with your instructor at tholt@xidix.com

Your instructor is Todd Holt.
