Agilityflow Courses #8: Spring Serpentines


Finally the spring is here! I am so excited! I also have some good news: if everything goes as planned, Vola can start to train agility soon! His leg has recovered very nicely and now we are just building some muscles :)

In this video, we are showing you two small space courses with little Venla. Nothing too technical, but a great opportunity to challenge your dog and yourself! With these courses, you can enjoy some serpentines and focus on your front crosses. Hope you are going to have fun with these!

Agilityflow Courses #6: Timing is the key


Hi! I am sorry, that I haven’t post any videos lately: Vola’s hock had to be operated and the rehabilitation process is pretty slow, so Vola won’t be able to run agility in this winter. I would like to thank you for all your support, Vola’s rehabilitation has started very well and yesterday he get his bandage off.

But, let’s take a look at this course! In this course, timing is the key. There are lot’s of jumps from the backside, so you don’t want to rush: if you run too early, the dog may take the jump from the wrong side. However, you want to get ahead of the dog to be able to tell her what the next jump is! In the situations like that, it may sometimes be helpful to handle the jump from the take off side instead of sending the dog to back.

Urban agility #4: Full speed right from the start line


It is a common problem, that the dog starts the course with slower speed. There are also dogs who don’t want to leave from the start at all: they just sit there and wait to get more treats! Or they decide to go sniffing when hearing the release cue.

Agility is about speed, so we want  our dogs to run full speed right from the start! These four games in the video are great exercises for dogs with motivational issues, but also for dogs who could have better start line behavior.

Agilityflow Courses #2: Challenge your blind crosses


These courses can be handled in many ways, but if you want, you can really challenge your blind crosses! With these courses, you can run full speed and just enjoy working with your dog. We trained these courses with Venla and we had so much fun! Venla has been in a short summer break from agility, and this was her second time training after the break. I have to say, that I just love running with her, it is agilityflow at it’s best!
