Running Contacts AUDITOR English (incl. directional cues): After booking the class, all content and lessons are available to you for 18 months. Train at your own pace when you want and where you want! Since the lessons build on each other, you can work through them in a relaxed manner, one after the other. You can ask questions about the exercises at any time. If you get stuck in the training, you can always book personal feedback with individual video analysis. There is no possibility to watch the participants (working spots) as it is a close class that runs all year round.
After booking the online class, feel free to join our internal Facebook group. There you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with other participants and auditors, you can motivate each other, post videos and maybe even find training partners. And I have the opportunity to get to know you guys better. I also enjoy following the progress of my "former" students, whether they are participants or auditors.
At what age should you start training Running Contacts? In my experience, I would recommend to start training when your dog is about 10-11 months old, because starting much earlier does not bring any real added value. Give your dog enough time to mature and develop. You can use this time to build important foundations for your future training. Introduce your dog to "free shaping" by building up different tricks. Work on good body awareness and try to find the balance between motivation and impulse control. During this time you can also build up the basics for cue discrimination. And very important... play, play, play...!!!

Running Contacts FEEDBACK English (only for teams that have already booked the class as AUDITOR): Do you struggle with your training and can't get any further? Or do you want me to check your training level? When booking, you have the opportunity to send me a video of your training with a maximum length of 5 minutes (YouTube or Vimeo). After you have filled out and sent the registration form, you transfer the amount (payment is only possible by bank transfer due to service fees) and I will send you a detailed feedback with your further homework.

Running Contacts DIRECTIONAL CUES English: You have already built up Running Contacts with your dog and you don't know exactly how to train the directional cues? I'll show you two ways (setup with barrels and setup with with food bowls) to build up hard turns and soft turns without equipment on the ground and then transfer them to the dogwalk. To allow your dog to perform the directional cues independently of you and your position, we will also work with a focus obstacle. After booking the class, all content and lessons are available to you for 18 months. Train at your own pace when you want and where you want! Since the lessons build on each other, you can work through them in a relaxed manner, one after the other. You can ask questions about the exercises at any time, but you will not be able to post videos and get feedback. The directional cues can be used not only at the contact obstacles (dogwalk, A-frame and seesaw), but also at the tunnel, at the slalom and as soft turns at jumps.

Running Contacts PARTICIPANT English (incl. directional cues): While you train the Running Contacts with your dog, you will be personally coached by me the whole time. You will get feedback on your videos and individual help for training with your dog within 2 days (holidays and weekends excluded). Exchange ideas with other participants and learn from each other. After booking the course, all content and lessons are available to you for 6 months. The training period can be extended by 3 months at any time. In the classroom you have your own area where you can post your questions and videos (YouTube). The forum is only visible to participants.
Price: 1st dog = 290,00 € (48,00 € per month) / 2nd dog = 232,00 € (39,00 € per month)
Extension for 3 months: 1st dog = 145,00 € (48,00 € per month) / 2nd dog = 116,00 € (39,00 € per month)
In order to maintain the quality of the training, the working spots with personal coaching unfortunately are very limited. Since the waiting list is already insanely full, it's only possible to take you on the waiting list with "long-term" planning. If you are interested, please contact me very early by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), then we will talk about the details!
