Online Classes

In my travels, I’ve been able to work with dogs & handlers from all over the country! The biggest drawback is that I’ve been unable to keep helping teams in their journey once I’ve left. Moving forward, Happy Thoughts Agility is excited to be offering more online teaching & resources! Multiple classes are in the works to provide handlers with comprehensive training plans for Happy agility dogs.

Online Classes are OPEN for registration! The following classes will be 6 weeks long, and held in a private Facebook group. You will be added into the group once you’ve signed up and paid. You do need a facebook account to access the class. Three levels of learning are offered in each class, so you can decide what works best for you!

Puppy/Young Dog Foundations: You have a long and amazing career ahead with your puppy. Start them off right with building blocks that will not only prepare them for agility, but aid life skills too! Flatwork, toy play, & life skills will all be included in this class. Equipment needed: cookies, tug toys, & clicker.

1 Jump Skill Building: 90% of courses are made up of jumps! We’ll work commitment, understanding, front side skills, as well as threadle and push skills, distance, Build, proof, and strengthen your skills on this crucial obstacle! Equipment needed: 1 jump (preferably with wings & with a bar)

Skill Building with Short Sequences: Short sequences can target specific skills to strengthen. HTA understands that not everyone has a large area to train, so let build essential skills in the areas we have! These sequences are designed to build the dog’s understanding and the handler’s ability. Equipment needed: 5 Jumps

Running Contacts Foundations: Now is the PERFECT time to learn, re-train, or proof your running contacts!! The RC class will start you at the building blocks stage, help you troubleshoot, create understanding for you and your dog, and build upon RC contact skills that we lay. This class is appropriate for young all the way up to seasoned dogs. It will consist of flatwork (NO dogwalk/A-Frame needed!), and will require a mat.
