The Handlers Hat: Being the Handler Your Dog Understands
Finally! Your dog will have what he/she has always wanted: a consistent, clear and reliable driver. This pre-recorded webinar offers solutions to typical handling dilemmas. You will learn the basic physical skills that the top handlers have before they can do agility well. You will learn how to assign all arms, feet, eyes and mouth a clear job.
The Teachers Hat: Dog Training The ACE Way
In this pre-recorded webinar you will learn how to be the teacher your dog needs you to be. You do this by building on, or enhancing the natural chemistry you have with your dog while you simultaneously create a reliable system of communication. The actual teaching of the desired skill is only commenced once the chemistry and communication are working well together.
The Competitors Hat: Being the Competitor You Want to Be
In this pre-recorded webinar I will share how I have become the competitor I truly want to be. I have worked with many talented trainers that were also good handlers that still could not reach their goals because aspects of competition were in the way of success or enjoyment. When you explore yourself before, during and after you compete you will discover what needs to be enhanced and what needs to be eliminated in order to be the competitor you want to be.
