JUN 29 Instructor Training Camp

Agility Instructor Training Camps

This camp is for agility handlers/instructors interested in improving their handling skills and learning strategies for teaching the huge variety of people interested in running dog agility!  As agility continues to grow in popularity more and more instructors will be needed.  I am looking to develop a training program — similar to the instructor training programs for both skiing and Karate - designed to teach instructors effective sports training methods.   One of the methods we will discuss is the CAP Model (CAP - Cognitive, Affective, Physical).  This model deals with how the student thinks, how they feel and how they move.  As agility instructors, we need to apply the CAP model to both students — the human handler and their K-9 partner.  

Camp will run for 3 days.  Instructors skills will be developed in several different ways.  1st we will review basic handling -- can the instructor do such and such - no real focus on any one system - however, general knowledge of the OMD terms will be presented.  2nd, and most importantly, students will teach small groups of their peers.  Immediate feedback will be provided during their instruction and after camp is concluded a 2 page summary will be sent to each participant detailing both their strengths and weaknesses. 3rd there will be a lecture section -- one hour at the end of each day.  The lecture will focus on general learning theory and students’ learning techniques. 

Lunch and Dinner will be provided.  Limited to 8 working spots.  Working spot $500.  Auditing is $50 a day.
