Online Seminars

My online classes are more effective than I ever imagined!  The extended time allows me to assign specific drills to help students improve specific areas of difficulty.  In addition, the online learning communities support students' progress and push everyone to train hard!  

The following classes are coming soon - so sign up NOW!

Gambling Skills ( 12 week class) Starts May 16th

Skills and Drills 12 (12 week class) Starts May 23rd

Upcoming Classes (Sign up will start in July)

Obstacle Commitment on the Run 2 (12 week class) Starts in August 

Weave Pole Challenge (5 week class) in August 


This course combines handling and obstacle commitment.  Exercises focus on handler staying connected to their dog and committing pup as he lands off previous obstacle.  (After pup is committed to the obstacle - handler will leave.)  For this to be possible dog must have obstacle commitment - drills to train this skill will be provided.  This is an extension of my favorite online class!  I am hoping students will continue to improve as dramatically as they did in OCR!  You do NOT have to have taken OCR to enroll in this class.

Prerequisite: Teaching Obstacle Commitment (or one of my other obstacle commitment classes).  Obstacle Commitment on the Run 1 is not a prerequisite for this class!

Auditing Spot $125

This seminar was designed to give agility trainers a systematic plan for fall training.  I will post homework that is focused on both the tried and true handling moves as well as the European moves (mostly One Mind Dog handling techniques).  The homework will include a variety of exercises – some homework will train specific skills and other homework assignments will be drills that incorporate the target skill.  The homework sets-ups will use up to 10 jumps and 2 tunnels – however, many of the exercises will be possible in very small spaces (with less equipment)– a small yard will be fine for at least one or two of the exercises given in each homework set.  This seminar was designed for masters level dogs – however, less experienced dogs are welcome to participate.   

Do you trust your dog’s obstacle commitment?  Can you cue a jump and then take off in the opposite direction?  Has an instructor ever told you to, “trust your dog,” but you just did not know if you could?  This online seminar teaches dogs to look for their obstacles and then stay committed to them regardless of their handlers movements.  Additionally, the class will teach handlers how to commit dogs to a path and to determine when their dog commits to an obstacle.   The focus of the course will be jump commitment, however, we will also do a few training exercises that will work to improve tunnel commitment as well.  

This online class provides 24 obstacle commitment exercises featuring several different dogs (Giggle - mini poodle, Tickle -BC, Cheerful - BC) and one 2 year-old ( Lobo - chocolate Lab).  The class is 12 weeks long and is an independent study - in other words, you start when you sign up and end 12 weeks later.  Students will post videos and questions that I will reply to every 24 hours (Monday - Thursday - then once Friday - Sunday).  All assignments are posted in the comments section of the announcement/pinned post - allowing each team to move at their own pace.  

Required equipment:

2 or 3 jumps
