My Light Bulb Experience

Have you experienced a OneMind Moment? An eye opening moment when you realized something very important about agility? Let's hear some stories...


While learning, people tend to have moments when "everything clicks". We at OneMind Dogs love seeing our students learn and realize something that helps them along their journey in agility. That's why we have decided to share with you stories about people having their OneMind Moments. Let's hear the story by one of the OneMind Dogs Premium members...

"I have been referring to my OneMind Dogs moments as "light bulb" moments. Although I've been involved in dog agility for almost 15 years, I have had some moments of clarity using OneMind Dogs techniques which have been delightful!

From the very first day of being a Premium Member and studying the methodology online, I have been fascinated by the description and use of the "Chest Laser". This might sound like a small thing, but it was an epiphany for me to clearly understand that the handler's chest pointing to the dog's line (and not just pointing towards the next obstacle) gives precise information to the dog. When combining the clear understanding of the Chest Laser with the "no hands" running I was given a tool which completely changed the way I now walk a course.

Again, perhaps to some handlers a small thing, but to me a huge change from relying on my hands pointing at things and now by walking courses without hands (as well as still practicing no hands running frequently with my dogs) I suddenly see different options for handling the sequences on course.

Understanding these "tools" of OneMind Dogs has made a huge impact on how I approach a course and on the connection created and maintained between me and my dogs on course. It blows my mind! In a good way!"

Share your OneMind moment with us. We’d love to hear from you!

The eyes!! When I run my dog and keep my face turned towards her, and I SEE her commitment point and see where she lands, everything else falls into place. I was always looking ahead to the next obstacle.

Our mission is to give a happy life to dogs by helping people become amazing dog owners. We are passionate about increasing the mutual understanding between the dog and the owner, making a life together more enjoyable for both.
