Agility Fix-It :: Tracy Sklenar

Got problems? We got answers! This class will help you work through any of the struggles you are having in training, in class, or in competition! Agility Fix-It is a personal, specific training program for you and your dog! This is a unique problem solving opportunity for all handlers and dogs!

Bring your training questions, issues, problems and anything in need of “fixing” to get a training program and problem solving class that is specific to the needs of your dog! This can include anything from building drive, focus and motivation, eliminating unwanted behaviors (zooming, sniffing, over-arousal, visiting), eliminating broken start lines, getting solid contacts and weaves, keeping bars up, eliminating handling issues such as off courses or refusals, reducing stress, dealing with distractions, and much more!
