Social Distancing ~ Lesson Plan #1

Our Training center will immediately suspend group classes to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. However, our current students are welcome to come out and train their dogs. I have drawn a lesson plan for individual practice, which I will present below.

Precautions

On a regular basis through the week we will sanitize surfaces, door handles, jump bars, and the toilet.

The Lesson Plan

This week we are running the National Dog Agility League 36×85 Fast & Fun course. The floor has been set and the sequence numbered. Note that the lesson plan allows for practice of elements of the course.

I will be available to record league runs for upload to YouTube so long as I’ve been given adequate notice.

These are the exercises. The first two are technical skills training; followed by three handling sequences to practice; and finished with two small working sets outside of the context of the league game.

Exercise #1 ~ Lateral Distance Dogwalk

This is an advanced exercise intended to teach a dog an independent performance of the dogwalk, while the handler works at a distance.

Exercise #2 ~ Lateral Distance Weave Poles

This is an advanced exercise intended to teach a dog an independent performance of the weave poles, while the handler works at a distance.
