Intermediate Handling Workshop
with Donna Brown

In 2004, Donna left the public school teaching profession to devote her energy and talents to teaching agility. Her students frequently comment that it is this “teaching skill” that makes her a successful instructor. Donna has achieved the highest titles in USDAA and AKC agility, and currently competes with her Corgi and Border Collies. She has qualified, competed, and reached the finals/challenger rounds at both the AKC and USDAA National Agility Championships. Donna excels at bringing training techniques to her agility students and places emphasis on the handler-dog relationship.

This workshop will concentrate on Intermediate Handling skills using jumps and tunnels. Participants should be preparing to trial.  Dogs should be comfortable with jumps and tunnels in sequences of 10-15 obstacles.

Online registration and payment is required. Registration opens Wednesday, December 5th at 9am.
