Claire I believe I have enough small dogs. For most drills larger dogs are best because it’s easier to see what they are doing. However, if you will have one or both of your dogs with you, you are welcome to run the ‘evaluation’ drill on Saturday morning that I use to sort the volunteer dogs into different drills for Sunday. I may decide that your dog would be perfect for one of the drills. Thank you.

Are you in need of a small dog or two? I can bring a young dog, who will jump 12" eventually, and an older dog currently jumping 12". Both Border terriers. I have some video of the older dog.

Are there any newer handling skills resources out there that you know about, Linda?


It is designed to be a resource that you will refer to for many years.

Define “newer” :)

I’m unaware of anything that’s free, unfortunately. I personally don’t teach handling classes online these days; Developing Handling Skills and material here still serves those just starting in agility well and I’m happy with that :)

I’ll be offering a two-day jumping workshop. The workshop will cover material derived from Mastering Jumping Skills Volumes 1 & 2. Topics include fundamentals of jumping that all agility handlers should benefit from with an overview of the jumping skills required in agility, leads, foundation jump training that promotes thoughtful, clean jumping, and training of multiple jumping skills with discussion of how these skills relate to handling (from MJS Vol 1). Jumping problems plus selected advanced jumping drills, and how they are used to improve performance (MJS Vol 2), will also be covered.

The format will be lecture/demo. There will be no “working” spots; however, participants will be encouraged to volunteer their dogs for the drills they may be suitable for. There may be opportunities for dogs of all levels to participate, from 6 mos to seasoned pro.
Mastering Jumping Skills is highly recommended. Information will be posted in the Announcements Board on the Awesome Paws Forum.

Both days:

Early registration fee: $225 USD (until April 1)
Registration fee: $275  USD (April 2 – May 16)
Registration at the door (check or cash only, no credit card payments at door) : $300 USD (After May 16)

One day only : $150 USD

Details and updates on the workshop will be found here. In addition, there will be a Facebook group that you can join for questions etc. Contact Joe to be added to the group.

 Mastering Jumping Skills 1 is an overall introduction to jumping; includes background info about the jumps themselves, on the different jumping skills, leads, etc It includes fitness & conditioning for jumping, foundation flatwork, intro to jumping and 1- and 2- jump skills.

Volume 2 picks up where 1 left off... beginning sequencing, adding handling skills to the mix, chapters with drills on the specific skills (collection, extension, slice, landing-side approach, etc), Jumping Problems, early takeoffs, etc etc.

So, they cover different material. The publisher tells me Volume 2 is on their radar for early 2019...so I’m hoping it won’t be much longer until its published.

I have been thinking of buying volume one but not sure if I should wait for volume two - is it out soon, does it replace vol one or add to it? Thank you
