Expanded Description:

You don’t need years of practice to master basic agility concepts – all you need is this DVD! Join Nicole Larocco-Skeehan as she demonstrates how agility can help dogs expend excess energy, build confidence, and most importantly, have fun!

Nicole will show you:
• How and why teaching agility for fun should differ from teaching at a competitive level.
• Tricks for getting your clients addicted to agility (and training in general!) so they can’t wait to come back, week after week.
• Strategies for building a shy or timid dog’s confidence through the use of agility obstacles in training.
• The nuts and bolts of teaching an agility class – even if you don’t have your own equipment.

Plus, Nicole shares a sample curriculum for a 6-week Introduction to Agility class for pet dog owners. Grab your treat pouch, put on your running shoes, and get ready to introduce your clients to the fast-paced and fun world of canine agility!

Nicole’s professional animal training career began in college, teaching equestrian and horseback riding lessons. After graduating from Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh with a double major in marketing and advertising, she worked at a boarding kennel as head trainer and obedience instructor, where she earned her CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer) title. In 2005, Nicole decided to move into the world of Animal Sheltering. Her introduction to shelter work was with Animal Friends, a no-kill animal shelter and companion animal resource center in Pittsburgh. In 2008, The Pennsylvania SPCA in Philadelphia recruited Nicole for the position of Director of Animal Behavior and Training; where she built a program to enrich the lives of the animals during their stay in the shelter, and to educate the public in an effort to find permanent homes for shelter animals. In this role, Nicole gained extensive experience working with the most vulnerable populations of animals including those affected by extreme cruelty and neglect. Nicole’s specialty in this role was retraining and rehabilitating fighting pit bulls and helping them to acclimate to life as family companions. Nicole continues to work in the field of animal rescue by contracting with shelters to build behavior programming. Nicole also created behavior programming and served as the Director of Behavior for New Leash on Life-USA, a prison dog training program; working hands on with the inmates and their dogs. Nicole’s efforts in animal rescue have been documented on television shows including Animal Cops: Philadelphia; Animal Planet’s: Dogfighting Exposed; National Geographic Network’s show ‘What Breed Am I?” and on local television and radio programming. Nicole currently owns and operates Philly Unleashed (www.phillyunleashed.com), which provides group and private dog training and behavior modification to the Philadelphia metro area. Nicole also instructs the shelter behavior residency for the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine, is a sought after speaker both locally and nationally, and is under contract to produce her first dog training book. In her spare time, Nicole loves to travel, and has successfully meshed vacations and animal behavior through working to rehabilitate wild parrots in Belize, and baby elephants in Kenya. Nicole resides in the Philadelphia area with her husband and a whole menagerie that includes; an Australian Cattle Dog named Uluru, a Border Collie mix named Porterhouse, two donkeys, four goats, and a flock of chickens.
