Clean Round Training
This class is perfect for agility teams who are serious about increasing their Q rate. This unique class is proven to develop consistency and reliability in competition performance and provide students with the missing link between their practice sessions and their competition performance.

This class gives teams the opportunity to perfect their critical thinking, improve timing and instincts. This is NOT a critiqued handling, course analysis, obstacle skills, or a problem solving class as there are plenty of those classes already available (contact Speedoggie FMI on those types classes). This class is something totally different and unique. This IS a class were teams are encouraged to master the skills they already have and perfect their timing and cue execution. For maximum performance results, the class is designed so that each week is a different format. This class is structured so each team receives substantially more course time then in a more traditional group course work class. The timing structure of our classes also ensures every student has equal time on course.

This one of a kind class is developed to work with all handling preferences and styles and is perfect for people who are looking to improve their performance results and/or add an additional practice session to their current schooling schedule.

Many of these students hold multiple places in the nations top 5 of their breed. Chris works with all breeds of dogs including mixed breeds at all levels of training and all ages. Her training program has proven itself over the years to produce dogs that run and play in agility well into their senior years while remaining sound and healthy throughout their careers. Many of Chris' senior dogs (both her own and her students) are still very competitive in the championship programs of AKC, UKI, FCI and USDAA as well as other nationally recognized programs such as NADAC, CPE and DOCNA.

She also spends hundreds of hours a year continuing her education in both dog behavior and performance as well as adult (human) learning to better help all of her students regardless of their learning styles.
