Big Sky Dog Center Jumping Workshop May 18/19
« on: March 04, 2019, 11:00:43 PM »
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.

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.

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.
