Dream Up The Good Life

Still Comparing Yourself to Others?

Featured Video Play Icon

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 […]

For Sale – Dog Books, DVDs

I’m selling several books/DVDs/CDs from my dog resource collection as they are too good to continue to sit on shelves. These are great resource items and should be enjoyed!

*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.

Excellent Std – WA 2-25-2011

This course was created for my home state agility peeps in Washington. When designing the course, I was feeling the pressure…something challenging, yet fun to run. (Reminder, click on the course to enlarge it for better viewing) Lately I’ve dabbled a bit on some creative course design (the Push-Back for example) and thought I’d incorporate […]
