Kerry Smith Agility Seminars


Full day seminars. Each day runs 9 am - 5 pm.
$200 working spot/$95 auditing per seminar
Maximum 8 working spots

Kerry tries to build upon skills taught each day and incorporate those skills throughout the weekend, so it is very beneficial to attend multiple days but not necessary, as she can also adjust and modify to your needs.

Saturday 8/31: Essential Skills and Problem Solving

Do you have questions about a specific skill or issue in the ring or in training? Here’s your chance to work on problem solving those issues and developing a plan to fix them. Depending on participant response, Kerry will help you with anything from building drive, impulse control, start line stays with focus, jumping skills, collection drills, tighter turns, and teaching verbals. Young dogs welcome!

Sunday 9/1: Skills in Short Sequences

This session will help you develop skills to improve distance and gain advantage on course whether you are handling ahead, laterally or behind. We will use short sequences that focus on skills needed to be successful in agility. Time will be taken to make sure criteria of these skills are understood by both the handler and the dog. Drills and homework will be given so these skills can easily be worked on at home with a few obstacles. Jumps and tunnels only.

Monday 9/2: Course Analysis

Have you said “I can’t get there” or “I’m not fast enough”? This session will focus on course analysis and lines to find the clearest and fastest path for your dog. Finding the best lines on a course will help you determine which way to turn on a course and choose the best way to handle a sequence. Finding the natural line for the dog will make you feel less frantic on course and be more proactive. It will let your dog know earlier which way to go and you will see less frustration in your dog and you will actually have to run less
