An agility foundation course is aimed at complete beginner dogs who do not have any experience in agility at all.
Dog Skillz provides an agility foundation course that consists of teaching the dog back end engagement and core strength. This is so the dog can learn to power from behind so they tire less quickly whilst still remaining balanced. This will teach the dog to jump efficiently and be more confident on any contact equipment. This will also help the dog to weight shift at the bottom of the contacts.
The dog will learn to read the handlers cues, turn on the ground and to accelerate and decelerate in accordance with the handlers body movement. The handler will also learn positional queues and commitment points of their dog so that the dog will be more confident when running a course quickly - even if the handler is not very quick!
This is all done before learning any equipment.
