Coached Run Throughs

with Megan Foster

August 31, 2019

Tyler's Field ~ Bellingham, WA

A “fun-match” with instruction. Each class will have a different lecture/discussion topic for teams to focus on during their walk through and runs, and will receive feedback from Megan. 

Session Topics

9:00 – 11:00 am Course Analysis 

This lecture & run through will focus on how to use the coursemap to plan your best handling strategy & create your “clear round rulebook”. 

11:30 – 1:30 pm Virtual Dog vs Real Dog 

This lecture & run through will focus on bridging the gap between what you planned during your walkthrough with your virtual dog and what actually happened with your real dog! 

2:00 – 4:00 pm Reducing Reinforcement

This lecture & run through will focus on getting enthusiastic, confident coursework from your dog even when the food & toys are not immediately available. 

4:30 – 6:30 pm Training in the Ring

This lecture & run through will focus on how to utilize the various training in the ring options and how to stay consistent & maintain clarity from training to competition. 

Everyone is working spot! There is no auditing! 

Because parking is limited, there is no auditing available. Working dogs should be able to complete a Novice Level Standard Course. All levels are welcome. Each lecture will present with a new course that will be nested for Novice/Open and Master/Premier. 

What does it cost?

Each lecture is limited to 12 dogs. You may choose as many lectures as you'd like. 

$50 = one lecture 

$95 = two lectures

$135 = three lectures 

$165 = four lectures
