It’s almost Christmas and the whole OneMind Dogs team (particularly our Coaches and Instructors!) are well and truly into the festive mood.

Leading OneMind Dogs Mikko Aaltonen wanted to share this year’s Christmas-themed course with the entire OneMind Dogs online community — so here it is!

My students wished for a Christmas themed course and a competition for our last class before the holidays. 

So, just like last year, I created a new Christmas tree course. There are two options for the same setup: easier and a bit more advanced one.

You will need quite a lot of space to build the whole course, but you can also choose some sequences out of it and practice them individually!

You get to practice different kinds of handling options on both courses. Take some time to consider what options you have for handling, and then start testing them with your dog!

In some parts of the courses you can also time different options to find out which one is the fastest, for example:

  • #14 -#18 on the easier course
  • #7 – #12 on the advanced course

You can find the printable course maps here:

Show us how you went! Remember to tag us on Facebook and Instagram with #oneminddogs so we can share the festive fun with you.

Happy Holidays,

My Puppy Doesn’t Want to Engage with Me — What Can I Do?

Bringing home a new puppy is exciting, but it’s also a big adjustment for both of you. If your puppy would rather go off on its own adventures than engage with you, it may be difficult to help them settle in or start puppy training. Luckily, there are ways to support their needs while building the bond between you.

Agility handling techniques – why are options important?

There are over 30 OneMind Dogs handling techniques that will allow you to create a diverse agility toolbox. Depending on your style, you may use some of the same tools very often, and other tools only get pulled out occasionally. Having a diverse toolbox with many options means that you can handle any course, no matter what restrictions you might be working with.
