Saturday, June 26: Demystifying Backsides of Jumps with Kristen Bartoli

If you’ve wondered what a backside is, how to teach it, and how to incorporate it into your agility repertoire, Kristen Bartoli will show you how. Increasingly, courses are requiring dogs to take the backsides of jumps, so this is a useful skill for you and your dog to know how to execute. It’s not just confined to the “fancy” international-type courses any more.

Presented by ARFF member Kristen Bartoli 
Saturday, June 26th, 9:00–11:00
