Needed to join this class:
• Successful completion of Intermediate Agility or similar
class, or at instructor's discretion;
• Dog can independently perform 12 weaves:
• Can successfully run a full course of at least 20 obstacles at full height;
• Your dog should be able to be penned or crated;
• The handler/dog team must be working together as a competent team;
• Your dog must be non-reactive towards
other dogs or people;
If you are competing in at least the Open level in agility (or at that skill level), this class is designed to challenge you and help you develop or strengthen your proficiency.
You will work on perfecting your different handling skills (when to use them and how to execute them) so that your signals are clear to your dog, which often increases your dog's confidence and build speed on the course.
You will also develop skill on how to analyze the course.
This course will help you to perfect skills that are needed to be successful on courses at the Excellent/Masters level. Ideas and assistance will be given on running these sequences that are more involved than those found at the Intermediate Level.
Cynthia Kean will be teaching this popular

sequences found in Excellent/Masters courses
and elements of International level courses.
Course fee: $100. Drop ins: $20 per dog.
