Due to the popularity of the classes at Glen Carbon, I am adding an additional class time on Tuesdays nights starting on September 13th. This will be a handling class for dogs that are competing or close to competing. Dogs must be able to do all the obstacles without any training aids. This will be in a full-size completion area. It will be taught by Chris Brewer at 8:00 p.m.
This class will continue working with you and your dog on their fundamentals of handling.
When filling out the registration form mark it as Young Team Handling class – 8:00 pm.
Team John and Jäeger will be representing the United States at the 2017 European Open
“I’ve trained with Joan for a number of years now, she has a way of bringing out the best in each team, doesn’t matter what size or breed. With Joan’s help and coaching, helped my boy Ruger and I make it to the finals at the 2013 AKC Agility Nationals! She knew how I needed to handle Ruger, since we didn’t have what one would call a “conventional start line” LOL It wasn’t until this year, that I really started to want to be pushed as hard as I could, as Jaeger and I were going to try out for Team USA going to the European Open in Italy, July 2017, with the experience Joan has in running in these types of events, she knew what I needed to get to my goal, make the team! Happy to say we were fortunate enough to be named to Team USA going to the European Open!! I know it was because of the coaching she provides, not only in class but what homework we could take home to master the skills we needed to succeed. Joan has taught me that no course is impossible, a never say never attitude. Joan has also taught me, if we don’t Q on a course, not to ask what I did wrong, but, what positive(s) did I have from the run. Thank you for not only the coaching but being a friend on top of it.” – John R.
