Success in any discipline relies on strong foundations and agility is no different. Long before you start tackling equipment or running courses, you can take the vital first steps to launch your dogs agility career. If you get it right from day one, shaping his mental attitude and honing his skills, you could be nurturing the star of tomorrow. In Foundation Fun and Games, Connie Sellers, who specialises in training young dogs and their handlers, has devised a series of games that work on drive and motivation. They also teach basic handling skills without the need for equipment. The games are based on 100 per cent positive training methods and abundant positive reinforcement, so learning is always a fun, enjoyable experience. As you progress through the games, your dog will start to accumulate all the knowledge he needs to find his way round an agility course. He will have been handsomely rewarded at every step of his learning so, when you are ready to try it for real, you will have a dog who not only knows his job he also loves doing it! Illustrated with over 100 photos and diagrams, plus a bonus section of courses to run with your dog, Foundation Fun and Games is a must for everyone who wants to give their dog the right start to his agility career.
