Developing Handling Skills for Awesome Agility Teams
Availability: In stock
This book will teach you what your dog already knows and wants you to learn—agility handling uses motion as the primary cue. Understanding how to use motion appropriately and in a timely manner is the most important handling skill you can master. Inappropriate motion is responsible for the majority of handling mistakes on the agility course. Have you ever wondered why your dog jumps long, goes too wide, turns the wrong way, runs by obstacles, goes off-course, or otherwise doesn’t respond the way you expect? This book will help you to answer these questions as it demonstrates various ways in which motion cues, when balanced appropriately with other cues, can create different responses from your dog. Developing Handling Skills will help you to discover the best way to balance cues to guide your dog efficiently and accurately on course. Believe it or not, all you need to do is learn how to “run in the right direction.” Developing Handling Skills is the most comprehensive book available on dog agility handling. It is designed to be a resource that you will refer to for many years to come. The sport will continue to evolve, but a dog's responses to the natural cues will not change, and motion will remain the primary cue.
