AWESOME PAWS SKILLS DRILLS

Linda Mecklenburg and Daisy Peel on the podium together in Chile - Americas Y Caribe

Foundation Training On The Flat Is Essential For Every Successful Jumping Program!!


This course is designed to help you and your canine partner work through many of the most commonly seen cue combinations on agility courses today. Using Linda Mecklenburg’s “Skills Drills” sequences, originally seen in Clean Run Magazine, as well as new sequences designed by Daisy, you'll be challenged to perform a variety of cue combinations, which will provide you with a skills checklist.

The Skills Drills Checklist

For each drill, you will be directed to perform a specific skill or combination of skills. The skills required are very basic at first, but quickly progress to an advanced level. You'll be encouraged to think outside the box!

You'll be able to work through all of the skills to be sure that you have each one in your bag of tricks. As you do so, you'll be asked to think about your cue combinations and how they compare from skill to skill. The material in this course will provide suggestions for cue combinations that might be used as a guideline for each skill, but after this class, you'll be more than prepared to come up with some of your own.
