Kerry Smith Agility Seminars

Friday, Mar. 8: Essential Skills and Problem Solving: Do you have questions about a specific skill or issue? Here’s your chance to work on problem-solving those issues and developing a plan to fix them.

Saturday, Mar 9: Work Smarter, not Harder: This session will cover reading lines, using motion, and developing skills to improve distance and gain advantage on course, improve the timing of your cues. Also mental aspects of agility, handler body awareness, and more.

Sunday, Mar 10: Read Between the Lines (Course Analysis): This session will focus on course analysis and lines to find the clearest and fastest path for your dog. This is critical since understanding your dog’s line determines what crises and techniques to use. We will cover how to choose techniques that will bring out the most speed from your dog.
