Frequently Asked Questions

What level is this course for?

The earlier lessons can be done by any level dog (even bars on the ground). Later lessons include sequences for more advanced dogs.

Younger dogs can spend all 6 weeks working on the earlier lessons if they want! I will give feedback to all homework assignments throughout the whole course.

What agility equipment do I need? And how much space?

You will need one winged jump and enough space to jump it safely. Later exercises will include a second jump and a tunnel, but most are just one!

Do I need any special technical equipment to access this course?

If you are submitting video, you will need a way to record video and upload it to YouTube or Facebook.

For accessing the class, any web browser should work for reading the class pages, watching videos, and posting your videos, questions, and comments.

Can I work two dogs?

Yes! You have two options:

  • Buy two spots in class and submit homework videos for both dogs on all lessons.
  • Buy one spot in class and submit one dog's videos per lesson. You can alternate dogs or just post whatever dog is struggling more with the homework. As long as it's one dog per lesson, the rest is up to you!

How long do I have access to the course?

The classroom will be open from Sept 25 - Nov 22, 2019. The instruction period ends Nov 8, 2019.

I still have a question, how can I contact you?

I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Send me an email at
