Tunnel Skills

taught by Maria Thiry

Course description

Tunnels are easy right? Dogs just go in and come out. Actually, there are heaps of skills with tunnels, that the dogs need to be taught. In this course we will cover - Tunnel self control games, exits (when to turn and when to drive straight), finding blind entries, pulling the dog off a wrong course tunnel entry and much more.

This 3 mth online workshop breaks it all down into really easy and fun games. You will find out your dog's weak spots, and have ways to work to fix them.

On top of all that, tunnels are just plain fun, and everyone that has done this workshop, has had a ball!

Equipment required is only one tunnel and some wings or cones to send the dogs around, and you only need small space too.

Agility is my passion, and teaching others to love it as much as I do, is an absolute joy. I'm a dog trainer that specialises in agility, training using positive and fun methods. I've been doing agility for over 15 years now, and I have been teaching others to have fun with their dogs since 2001.

I don't believe one size fits all in agility and do not follow one specific handling system. I love how my agility handling has expanded over the last few years and I'm really embracing fun and exciting handling techniques that don't restrict me at all. I have loads of different ideas for helping all sorts of dogs and handlers improve their teamwork and course running.

Over the years I have taken three dogs to their Australian Agility Championship in ADAA and have won multiple big events with different dogs at both ANKC and ADAA Nationals. For more info on this check out my website at rdagility.com and click on the About tab.
