Elementary 1 & 2
Tuesday 7pm - 8pm
Elementary builds obstacle understanding and starts handling sequences.
The Elementary program runs for 18 weeks with dogs and handlers being introduced to a variety of different obstacles using one core handling system. Weekly classes will focus on three jump types, 2 varieties of tunnel and introduces contact equipment and weave poles.
The Elementary classes are split between Elementary 1 and Elementary 2, whilst the course content is the same, this does allow us to increase the difficulty of the exercises and continue to build these skills.
There is an assessment at weeks 9 and weeks 18 of the course that determine your placing in either class.
There is no restriction on how long a dog may remain in Elementary however to move from Elementary 2 into the Starters class, dogs and handlers must pass an evaluation.
All dogs must have either successfully completed Foundations, or been assessed as competent by our instructor team.
