OneMind Dogs Handling Techniques

OneMind Dogs currently uses more than 30 handling techniques. Amazingly, the first 20 are purely natural reactions by the dog to the handlers’ cues. The individual handling techniques have been clearly named to make it easier to teach our students. The handling techniques consist of combinations of all the different elements of handling: movement, position, chest laser, contact, feet, hands and verbal commands. The core rule is that the handler should be consistent with the training and never give mixed signals to the dog. Our handlers practice a lot without the dog, so as to really learn the technique first by themselves and save the dogs from confusion! After the handler has learned the technique well enough, we bring the dog along.

How to train a new agility handling technique?

These are the steps you need to take to learn a new agility handling technique:
  • Watch and get acquainted with the handling technique lessons
  • Practice the technique by yourself, without your dog
  • Train the handling technique together with your dog
  • Put the technique in a sequence!

Let OneMind Dogs Coach Niki Drage show you how it’s done!

"I love the philosophy of connection with our dogs. Thinking of handling and the course from the dog's perspective changes the whole game!"

I love OneMind Dogs! It changed my whole perspective. Now I understand more that I need to learn things that my dog already knows
