The context of the diagram is to share additional Premier Class challenges judges may incorporate into their course design and these sequences provide excellent training material for handlers of all levels. Enjoy […]
What is the first word that pops into your head when I say “Weave Poles?” I recently asked this question on Facebook and the reactions were clearly in one of two camps.

As an agility coach, I’m both excited and concerned when I hear clients say “I want to handle my dog like so-and-so (insert the local agility hero’s name)…” I’m excited because this shows the client has aspirations, goals, drive and they want to continue in their agility journey. I’m concerned because often this same client […]

Your host for this Webinar is Lisa Selthofer, 15+ year Agility Judge, Competitor, Coach and owner of the training blog SpotOnAgility.com.
*What is a Webinar?
In this case, a Webinar is an opportunity to attend a training from wherever you have an internet connection! No travel required!
All that is needed to participate is an internet connection, speakers or a headset and an internet device to view the material we’ll provide on-screen. A device can be a computer, laptop, ipad, smart phone, tablet, etc.
For a better connection to the webinar, our tech folks highly suggest attending using a direct (internet plug-in) device, that you turn-off all other streaming applications (like movies, facebook, messenger, and other things that automatically update, etc.) on your device AND on all other devices in your household network. Why? Think of it this way, a webinar is a movie and for 1-hour you’d like it to run smooth and not be interrupted by other applications asking for Internet usage (these things can slow down and even stall your Webinar stream). So turn off those other applications for 1-hour.
Pen and paper is always good to have on hand in case you want to take some notes.
