Balancing Cues in Agility 8- DVD Set
What is it about? Success in dog agility depends on your ability to effectively communicate with your dog. Your ability to communicate with your dog and guide him through a course depends on your understanding of how to balance the six basic agility cues—motion, shoulders, location, arm/hand signals, verbal cues, and eyes—described in Linda Mecklenburg’s highly acclaimed book Developing Handling Skills.
This DVD is an edited recording of a two-day seminar presented by Linda and recorded live at the Clean Run training facility in November 2010. Different types of dogs, including mini dogs, participated. Unlike most seminars, choosing the best handling strategy is not the focus of this seminar. Instead, each drill has a predetermined cue combination and the goal is to effectively balance the cues for each individual dog. The appropriate use of motion and the appropriate timing of the cues is emphasized. Familiar sequences are used so that the handler can pay attention to the details of handling.
This seminar focuses on practical
Learn to improve your execution and timing of cue combinations!
