I’ll be working on this course with Noni, my almost 9 month old girl Brittany. We’re looking forward to it!
Good morning, my name is Linda and I have a 4 1/2 yr old and a 7 month old Aussie. I’m fairly new to agility and want to give my puppy a good solid agility foundation. This is my first experience taking an online course and I’m excited to get started! I’m just a spectator.
Welcome to the course, Linda!! I hope that I can guide you in your first online course experience!
I’m Stefanie and taking this course with my youngest dog, Rikki Tikki Tavi, a Border Terrier X Border Collie. I’ve read Linda’s book but it is just so much information to process so I am looking forward to having the help breaking it down and getting the feedback!
Welcome to the course, Stefanie!!
Hello, I am Carolyn and my BC Lotus is 2 years old. I’m excited to get these foundations down for her!
Welcome!!!! Glad you’re here!
My name is Linda and I will be working with my 14 month old Border Collie, Zipper. This is my first Border Collie, I have trained Shelties before. I bought Linda Mecklenburg’s
Book a couple months ago and look forward to a structured class.
Welcome Linda! Glad you’re here! I have my first Sheltie, and have trained border collies before! I might hit YOU up for advice! 🙂
I have a 6 mo BC pup named Juno, and wanted to get us off to a good start! The timing of this class is perfect, and I look forward to getting started!
Welcome @pintarj – I’m glad you’re here!
Are we moving through the course at our own pace or are we following a schedule?
@CarolynRancourt great question! Although you CAN go through all the units and uncover them at your own pace, it’s ideal to treat each module/lesson as a week long chunk, sometimes two. There will be multiple units within each module, but plan on one module a week. I will be focusing on module 1 this week; if you’re ahead, that’s great, but you’ll probably be progressing a little too quickly to really solidify you and your dog’s understanding of the material 🙂
Hello! My name is Shelby and I’m taking this class with my 7.5 month old border collie puppy, Moss. Unfortunately the start of this class is not great timing for me – I leave tomorrow morning for an overnight relay in central Oregon (and my only dogless vacation!), and won’t be back until 8/7. I’ll do lots of catching up then!
Welcome Shelby! Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to catch up 🙂 Good luck with the relay!
This is Alexandria and my 5 dogs from Australia.
Hi, I have had Linda’s book on my shelf since it first came out. Funny, my dogs haven’t read it, so we are taking the course so i show them how.
LOL, if only it were that simple! Welcome to the course!
Hi, This is Carolyn. Glad to be here! Looking forward to the class.
I’m Patty and will be taking the class with my 4 month old Border Collie, Firefly. Looking forward to the fun of Flatwork and I Realize that there may be some work that my puppy is not old enough to do yet.
Welcome Patty!! I’m glad you made it!
Hi, I am auditing with my 6 month old puppy, Sisu (the black & white one). We’re looking forward to learning!
Welcome Jennifer!! Glad you made it in to the classroom!
I am excited to learn some important skills with my 7 month old corgi Waffles.
Welcome Liz and Waffles!!!! perfect timing!
Hello everyone, My name is John and I have a 9 month old Toller named Baily. She’ll be my second agility dog. I’ve taken lessons from Daisy and she has an eye for precision and challenges you so your dog and you become a great working team. Excited to learn the correct methods from the start.
Welcome John! Glad to see you here!!
Hi! I´m Kristine from Norway and I will be taking this class with my 5 months old working cocker, Mocca. She is my third agility dog, I have been doing agility for 12 years. My 6 years old danish swedish farmodog, Alma, will also do some of the work in the class, even if she is experienced 🙂
Welcome Kristine! I’m looking forward to the course with you!
Hello, my name is Nancy and I am taking the course with my 9 month old Malinois, Kindle. She is my second agility dog. I never did fundamentals with my first dog and I look forward to creating a solid base with my new dog. My first dog did very well when she Q’d but would frequently drop bars in JWW (but not STD). Sometimes my fault for being in her way, sometimes hers for not judging the distance correctly, etc. Hope to avoid those issues with this pup. Looking forward to learning with everyone!
Welcome Nancy!! This flatwork stuff is a real gamechanger – I’m glad you’re here!!
Hi! My name is Brenda and I am working with my whippet, Zen. She is 2 and has big shoes to follow as her mom is a MACH. I am looking forward to the class.
HI, I’m in this course with my partner in crime, Snow. A rescued border collie (at nine months he had had four families). We were last hope, the breeder was to euthanize him. His only problem; he’s a toy terminator and has to be active. Normal Border Collie! He’s now 3 years 6 months, one smart and calm… yes yes calm dog when he’s exercised enough. I am part of the 2018 challenge but saving up (like a squirrel) most of the lessons because I’m not quite there with my dog. This class will permit me to get off to… Read more »
Welcome Colette! And welcome Snow! I’m glad you’re both here 🙂
Hello! My name is Jill and I am here with Jedi, my 9 month old working/field Golden. I am new to the sport of agility and Jedi has big potential, as his mom is a 6 time MACH. I have had Linda’s book since it first came out, and I am really excited to be in this class so I can have guided instruction on how best to apply its content!
Welcome Jill and Jedi!!
