Summer Fun Workshop!

 Agility Verbals! 
with Terry Herman

Tuesday, July 12 • 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Why verbals? Isn’t motion the most powerful cue in agility? Why should I use words too?

Have you ever used a GPS without the voice prompts? Can you follow the moving vehicle on the map? Sure, but isn’t it easier when you hear something like, “prepare to turn right”, or “go through this light and take a left at the next light”? That’s what our agility verbals do – provide the dog with advance information on which way to go and what to do next.

They’re particularly important when we can’t use our motion as a cue – like a gamble or FAST send, or when we’re not in front of our dog, or on a discrimination. So, what verbals do you need and how do you train them? This workshop will cover some of the most often used agility verbals and the basics of training them.

The workshop is open to all levels, although dogs must be able to send to a jump or tunnel. Contacts & weaves will not be used.
