Linda Mecklenburg has arrived at a simple but comprehensive approach to agility handling that is appropriate for all dogs and handlers, from the beginner to the most accomplished competitor. Developing Handling Skills For Awesome Agility Teams describes how to communicate with your dog and effectively cue him to perform the challenges he will encounter on course. This book will teach you what your dog already knows and wants you to learn — agility handling uses motion as the primary cue. Understanding how to use motion appropriately and in a timely manner is the most important handling skill you can master. Inappropriate motion is responsible for the majority of handling mistakes on the agility course. Have you ever wondered why your dog jumps long, goes too wide, turns the wrong way, runs by obstacles, goes off course, or otherwise doesn't respond the way you expect? This book will help you answer these questions as it demonstrates various ways in which motion cues, when balanced appropriately with other cues, can create different responses from your dog. Developing Handling Skills will help you discover the best way to balance cues to guide your dog efficiently and accurately on course. Believe it or not, all you need to do is learn how to "run in the right direction." 304 pages, 8.5" x 11" softcover. By Linda Mecklenburg © 2011.
