Contact Proofing for Competition Prep + Mental Training
6 week set, 1.5 hour classes
Reliable contact performance opens up your handling options. When you can trust your dog to complete their end of contact behaviour from anywhere regardless of where you are, your handling options are endless. This class focuses on training and proofing your dog’s contact performance within a course setting to get the most reliable 2 on 2 off behaviour possible.
The biggest factor in your agility training is your mind – it can skyrocket your opportunities for success or it can keep you stagnant in one place. Learn how to use the most important tool in your agility toolbox – your mind – to achieve greater success in your agility game. Each class will include mental training exercises to help you gain control over your self deprecating thoughts, tools to re-program your brain for forward progression and self-assurance, and how to put it all together to accelerate your agility game in a way you never imagined possible. Mental training is the key to unlocking your potential in agility.
