Intro to Distance Handling

Jean Wilkins will be presenting a distance handling mini-seminar in three parts this summer.   Jean has been involved in agility since 1992. She is a NADAC Judge and USDAA Masters Judge. Jean competes at the highest level in three agility venues (NADAC, USDAA and AKC) with Norwegian Elk Hounds and rescue Australian Shepherds.

This seminar is designed to give dog/handler teams the necessary basic skills for distance handling. No contact equipment or weaves will be used. Dogs must be able to independently do short sequences. Whether you want to develop or improve your basic distance handling skills, this seminar will provide a range of exercises and foundation skills necessary for dog and handler to be able to work at a distance.
