What is it about? Great runs on agility courses don't just happen. And they aren't just a matter of exquisite handling and thorough training. Behind every flowing run in agility is a great partnership. For some dog and handler teams this partnership develops naturally over the course of training. But unfortunately this isn't always the case. Many dogs can meet the physical demands required for agility but have difficulty with the mental aspects of the game. Agility requires concentration, confidence, and a willingness to take direction from and work with the handler. Without this, you can end up with a dog that is distracted, unmotivated, out of control, or inconsistent in the ring. The authors of In FOCUS, animal behaviorist and clicker expert, Deborah Jones, Ph.D., and a former AKC/USA World Team member, Judy Keller, join forces to show you how to use their FOCUS program—Fun, Obedience, and Consistency lead to Unbelievable Success—to develop or repair that underlying working relationship you need to succeed in agility or any performance dog sport. Whether you are starting agility with a new dog or trying to solve performance problems with an older dog, it's never too late to build focus!
