Obedience 4 Agility Workshop, 28 May 2024

The goal of this workshop is to help dogs and handlers new to the sport of agility develop skills that will get them off to a successful start in this wonderful team activity.

This workshop will use games and positive reinforcement to help handlers and their dogs to

  • Develop focus and engagement with each other. Agility is much easier at any level if you and your dog are able to work as a team and connect with one another.

  • Maintain stationary positions (such as sits and stands) which will form the foundation for completing contacts, startline stays and even being measured by a judge.

  • Recalls and moving with the handler (even in distracting environments!) Dogs do get the zoomies! A dog who comes back to you will minimize your frustration.

  • Targeting objects close and further away, including hands, cones and flat targets. This forms the basis for training contacts and having your dog work away from you

This workshop is presented by Liz Doran who has trained her dogs in obedience, rally, agility, field work and dock diving.  In obedience she and her canine partners attained both OTCh and MOTCh titles, including High in Trial scores. In agility, she has earned titles up to masters levels with her goldens Samson and Rory. Liz has been an instructor at Paws4Fun agility for 5 years.
