Agility Foundation Beginnings

Posted by Amanda Beasley on Friday, March 11, 2011 Under: Agility: Foundation
For my beginning foundation training, I stuck with Moe Strenfel's methods most of the time. The first week: Tug, Look, Touch, Break (paws on stomach), Name Game, Side (start line position). Side took the longest, a good two weeks to get her to where she was doing it 90% of the time, with physical cue and verbal cue. I originally taught it by turning her head with the treat away from my body, which turned her rear end in to me, but I ended up re-teaching it using a clicker and shaping the behavior with a perch box (will go over that later).

We then moved to stay with break as a release to the toy in my hand, and started "waltzing", which turned into learning the front cross.
