Foundation Training

When you start to build your “agility house”, the foundation training is the soil on which you build. Even the finest country house will collapse if the soil underneath is not solid. That’s why foundation training is so important: it affects everything you do in agility throughout your dog’s whole agility career.

During the past few years, the basic training of OneMind Dogs has progressed and become much more comprehensive. If we have noticed a problem with any dog’s behavior or response to handling, we have worked to come up with a way to proactively prevent the problem in the future with foundation training. What we really like about basic training is that you can do most of it anywhere: in your living room, yard or in a forest; you don’t need agility obstacles or a training hall to prepare your dog.
