Agility Dogs in the Park with Dianne Ford
In these 90 minute events (5 dogs maximum), participants will have the option to run one or both nested courses in a pre-designed course (Train to Trial). Participants may also use their turn to work on other training goals, like environment exposure, recalls, individual obstacle practice (Novice Run As You Wish). Reinforcements of food or toys are highly encouraged during these events. Dianne provides assistance and feedback as requested by the participants. These are not structured workshops. Outdoor site location is Southlands Park (between Orange Store/Dairy Queen, Cottonwood Cres, Ruby Line, and Treetop – parking on Treetop). All registrants must conduct the Covid-19 screening test the morning of the event, and follow the safety protocols.
Novice Run As You Wish events will be for teams wishing to work on focus, equipment skills, and simple sequencing. Advanced courses will not be available during these times.
Train to Trial events will be for teams wishing to run sequences to full courses and prepare mentally (as a team) for trialing.
