ADVANCED-MASTERS CROSSES / COURSE EVALUATION

Learn or fine tune your performance on some of the more advanced crosses in agility... understanding maneuvers
like the flip, peekaboo, backside blind, toss back, switch, c-turn and double blind can ensure that you have more
options on course. This workshop will look at the basics of these types of crosses and turns along with
fundamentals of how, when and where to use them.
This workshop will also focus on higher level courses, and how to find the right lines and make the handling choices
that will help your dog find success on more challenging sequences. The handlers will first walk and run a course
with their dogs, then the course will be broken down into short sequences to look at handling options and try
various alternatives.
For dogs and handlers who are currently running full courses at an Advanced or Masters Level

BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE CROSSES / COURSE EVALUATION

(rear cross), counter rotation on course and how to use rotation, layering, lead changes, acceleration and other
manouveurs to help your dog set up for a line can be critical to your success on course.
This workshop will also focus on intermediate level courses, and how to find the right lines and make the handling
choices that will help your dog find success on sequences. The handlers will first walk and run a course with their
