Agility is much like the game of connect the dots. We spend so much more time creating the lines for the dog than the dog spends performing the obstacles. The goal of the One Mind Dogs (OMD) methodology is to teach the handlers to think about the lines, not the obstacles. The benefit of attending a Techniques Seminar is that you will learn how to create the lines for your dog. You will learn the function of each handling technique and where to use them. In addition, you will learn the common errors we see when executing each technique. This seminar will also use short sequences highlighting one or two techniques in each sequence to give you the chance to apply your newly learned techniques.
Intermediate Short Sequences
This seminar is for handlers already familiar with the techniques, but want a deeper understanding of the techniques and their application in short course sequences (10-14 obstacles).
Masters/International Short Sequences
This seminar is for handlers that are very familiar with OMD techniques and application of techniques.
