Online class:  There is no such thing as distance!

Sign up and learn how to properly teach your dog to understand the agility obstacles so your dog can perform them without you beside!


The subject:

The class will start and mainly focus on Jumps(wrapping) and tunnels. I will adapt the class for each person. So if you show me that your dog is already able to complete Jumps and tunnel without you moving, we can work on other obstacles. (as long as you have the equipment available to train on your own.)


This class is for:

  • Experienced dogs who need better distance or more independence with the agility obstacles.
  • Young dogs (3 months and older)can learn how to do Wraps and tunnels. (no bars will be used on jumps for young dogs)
  • New dogs who have never done agility and want to learn the proper way. 

Requirement:

To sign up for this class you need to have access to the the following:


Mandatory: 

  • A video recording device (video camera, cell phone or else)
  • A google account with a youtube account on the same email address. (Gmail address needed) If you don't have one, We will provide instruction on how to create one(Free))
  • One agility Jump (that's the minimum for the class)
  • Toys you can throw, (if you dog doesn't play, you need a toy you can put food in and throw)

Optional: 

  • A regular size agility tunnel(24" diameter)
  • Any other obstacle you want to work on.

Cost: $200

No observer spots are available. (only working spot) Because we believe you have to try it in order to see that it works! :)

Duration: 8 weeks


The teacher: Stephane LAFOND: "I will provide you with videos of exercises to complete.  I will answer all your questions related to the class topic, I will watch your videos and comment on what was good and what to improve.  I will watch videos and reply to questions at least once a day! 


Bilingual classes: The video are recorded in english. But I can provide explanation and comment in French if you need. 


**No refund of any kind will be done if you decide to stop or quit the online classes. 



How do the online classes work: 

  1. Once you have paid, We will provide you with a link and a code to join the online class. 
  2. I will post a video of the exercises you have to practice.
  3. You watch the video when you want to and you try to do the same with your dog.
  4. You record a video of your training and you post it in the class. You can also post questions at anytime. 
  5. I will watch your video and give you advice, and if I see your dog has understand that exercise, I will give you access to the next video exercise.

Contrary to many online classes in which a new video is posted each week, I will give you access to the another video exercise as soon I am satisfied you have successfully completed the current one.


Advantages of doing it this way: 

  • If you train a lot, you won't have to wait for the next video...
  • People won't go too fast and won't be confused by watching further steps.
  • You learn at your own pace. 

Each week You are allowed to post a maximum of 7 videos with a maximum length of 2 minutes per video. You can ask as many questions as you want. :)

Next class starts on May 24th 2020
