Enjoying Dog Agility

https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=JqEKBgAAQBAJ&...
Enjoying Dog Agility (2nd edition) is the premier beginner’s guide to the fast-growing sport of dog agility. Author Julie Daniels, a national and international agility champion and one of the early pioneers of the sport in the United States, has written an upbeat and informative must-read that shares her insight into all aspects of agility, from initial training of the dog to competing and succeeding in agility trials. A perfectly crafted guide for novice agility handlers, Daniels’s book teaches handlers to motivate their dogs, use positive-training techniques, and, most of all, have fun with their dogs. Divided into two sections, the book begins with “This Is Agility,” the section that introduces readers to the basic requirements of the sport, methods of handling the dog, conditioning for the dog, and developing true teamwork with the dog. The second section is devoted to “The Obstacles” and discusses how to train the dog for all of the major obstacles found at trial: the apertures (open and closed tunnels and tire jump), the ramps (A-framed, dogwalk, and seesaw), the jumps (bar and solid jumps, spread jumps, and broad jumps), the pause table, and the weave poles. Each obstacle in Section II is presented with step-by-step training instructions on how to introduce the dog to the obstacle and how to navigate it, including avoiding and fixing problems along the way. As Stuart Mah (of Rising Stars Dog Agility) says of the author and her classic text, “Long-considered one of the ‘grand dames’ of dog agility, Julie Daniels writes in an easy-to-understand style. Reading Enjoying Dog Agility is like having Julie there, discussing agility with you personally.” Fully indexed for ease of reference.

Teaching the Dog to Think

books.google.com/books?id=hjyNJ9CF0wgC&dq=dog+agility...
TEACHING THE DOG TO THINK is Kimberly Davis' engaging memoir about her crash introduction to the sport of dog agility-with its jumps, tunnels, balance beams and weave poles. An award-winning poet and blogger, Davis vividly describes her frustrations trying to get her dog to "mind." We then watch as her first steely-eyed agility coach shames her into giving up choke collars and scruff shakes in favor of the "positive" training methods used by agility instructors. Davis' breezy, often humorous account shows how these new techniques allow her to communicate with the "alien" mind of a dog. Also how they transform her unruly yearling collie, Willow, into a loyal, hardworking teammate. Davis ultimately carries the lessons she has mastered in dog training class into other areas of her life, particularly into parenting and teaching creative writing. In the end, this memoir becomes a soul-searching exploration of how to get others to do what we want without bullying or cruelty-by using our heads and forcing ourselves to be a little smarter. A subtly subversive book about dealing responsibly with those less powerful than ourselves, Teaching The Dog To Think speaks not only to dog lovers, but also to anyone who has ever felt helpless, angry, or frustrated as a parent, teacher or pet owner. "You MUST read this book if you have children or pets, and want to change their behavior without coercion "--Richard McManus, Founder and President, The Fluency Factory "An interesting story of how switching to clicker training vastly improved one agility fan's dog and also changed her own approach to family life."--Karen Pryor, author of Don't Shoot the Dog and Reaching the Animal Mind "A wonderful entry point for anyone learning about these important new methods for teaching skills and enhancing creativity."--Catherine S. Mayes, Independent Autism Advocate and Autism Project Advocate, Massachusetts Advocates for Children

From the Ground Up

books.google.com/books?id=8j2Z5zi0REYC&dq=dog+agility...
You might have a dog who you think will be a super-star on the agility course, but unless you work with him “from the ground up,” you may end up being disappointed. Author Kim Collins takes the position that there is a lot of training and relationship building that needs to go on before you ever begin to train the specific skills needed for agility. So this is the perfect book for you if you have a puppy or a young dog and are planning a career in agility in the future as it provides a complete training plan for both his pre-agility work and when he is ready to head out on the course.

Flatwork

https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=cwx_DwAAQBAJ&...
Flatwork: Foundation for Agility isn’t about the obstacles; it’s about what happens between the obstacles. Your dog spends more time between the obstacles running with you on the flat than he does performing the obstacles. It’s on the flat, after all, that you set up your dog’s approach to the next obstacle. It’s on the flat where you as handler do most of your job guiding the dog. Performing flatwork successfully requires excellent communication between dog and handler. Flatwork: Foundation for Agility is also about developing a communication system with your dog as you teach him each agility maneuver without the distraction of obstacles. As you follow this training program, you will develop a set of cues and movements that indi¬cate specific behaviors to the dog, and you will become aware of exactly what your body is really “saying” to your dog. Flatwork is your agility foundation, teaching you how to handle and how to make all your body language clear, consistent, coherent, and timely while also teaching your dog how to take direction and stay with you on course.
