Saturday 4th December

Advanced Rear Crosses and Slices

4th December
10:00 - 12:00 am

A rear cross by any other name is still a rear cross!! Sometimes referred to as a whisky slice or flick, some rear crosses seem more difficult simply because of the approach or exit angle. We will look at how handlers need to cue more effectively and improve their understanding of this simple handling manoeuvre.

Members £25 / Non-members £30

Pull Throughs

4th December
12:30 - 1:30 pm

As agility continues to progress as a sport, the way of handling pull throughs is becoming more diverse. Are you confident that you know how to handle them in a way that is consistent with your handling system? Can you do them perfectly on a training day but never in competition? Do you know when to use them or not? This session will improve your understanding and execution of the old classic!

Suitable for some young dogs.

Members £15 / Non-members £20
