Footwork matters! Every step you take when you handle your dog in agility provides him with information on where to go next. But here’s the question—are your feet telling your dog where you want him to go? Handling with your Feet First is the simplest way to correctly and consistently cue turns and set lines to the next obstacle(s) on course.
The Feet First program works for all levels of handlers, no matter what type of handling method you are using, and you can make progress quickly and permanently. Learning how to make your feet do what you want them to do, when you want them to do it, will enable you to get around the course more efficiently and free you to focus on your dog and the course that you’re handling.
In this DVD you will watch Sandy work with a variety of handlers and their dogs on basic footwork drills designed to “wake up your feet,” air handling drills, and drills for perfecting the footwork cues Sandy uses to handle her own dogs. As you begin to understand the power of your feet, you can apply the drills to your own handling system to show your dog where to go, to show him where to go next, to cue extension (acceleration), and to cue collection (deceleration).
Handling with your Feet First will transform your ability to communicate with your dog in agility.
