Go the Distance: A carefully crafted plan for teaching dogs and handlers to work comfortably at a distance in agility. The book is organised into progressive lessons which build upon fundamental skills. The authors make the point early on that distance work is a key element of success in virtually any agility game. While the book is useful for all agility competitors who want to work on distance skills, it includes sections designed to provide the agility instructor with a clearly written reference for teaching the basics of distance work in a class setting. The lesson plans are well organised and include attention to administration of the training programme as well as weekly homework assignments for students taking the course. And while the book is divided neatly into eight clear lesson plans, it also contains many exercises which can be used and reused and expanded upon. Go the Distance includes appendix by Linda Mecklenburg that cover teaching your dog a Turn command (180-degree turn), teaching Left and Right directional commands, and more.

Stacy Peardot-Goudy's passion for dog training began at age 12 with a Siberian Husky, and later led to agility classes with her two Boxers.
