Elicia has been passionate about dogs her entire life. She stumbled across Dog Agility 26 years ago when she was trying out for a TV Show to win a year's worth of dog food, and missed the auditions. Believing that her dog could do anything, and that she wanted to play with her dog, the addiction to the sport began. Elicia's driving force has been to share the joy of the sport with others! Agility has not only enhanced her personal relationship with her own dogs, but it has also supported her through life's challenges to develop the Champion Mindset with which she lives life!
Although I've won 3 World Championships and 6 National Championships, I started competing before I knew anything. I didn't know how to train dogs, other than our family pets. I had never participated in team sports, let alone competed in sports. I had NO mental game to draw upon. I only had the relationship with my dog, a passion for playing with my dog, and an insatiable desire to learn!
I've had my share of mistakes, bumbles, and outright fumbles in the ring over the years. But through that experience, I've found a great system that has worked for me, by taking a good idea from here, and a new technique from there, and combining them all together into what I now teach my private students.
I teach the Essential tools that help my students feel like a champion when they step onto the course with their dogs. These are the ideas, training tactics, and mental attitudes that allows them to perform at their peak - thus Peak Performance.
I have found that it is not just one magic tip or training routine that makes a champion. Instead, it is a combination of several areas that I think you need to know in order to have a winning team ready at the start and that can end up on the top of the podium consistently. But it is not all work, the whole point is to learn to work as a team and have fun with your dog.
Over the past 27 years I've worked with students at all levels of competition. This course is not for a new beginner to the sport. You and your dog have to come with some basic communication and performance skills. Instead, this material is helpful if you are just starting to compete, all the way up to being along side me on the USA team going to the World Championships. If you're ready to improve, this affordable self-program may be just the right resource to help you "level up" both you and your dog.
I've taken the core of what has worked for me and created an on-line course where I share the techniques that will help you have more confidence when you and your dog enter the ring.
Most of the other training programs for Agility that I'm aware of only teach handling techniques. I go beyond that to help you develop your mental game, and show you how to get repeated success by recording and tracking your progress with my unique post-run tracking and journaling process that I'll be teaching you.
So this is more than just handling techniques. It is a complete process to help you and your dog perform at your best. It is the same process that I use that has helped put me on the top level of the podium on at the National Championships 6 times and on the top level of the podium at the World Championships 3 times. And I know that it can help you too!
During the program you can ask your questions and give comments that I'll be in there responding to, answering your questions, and cheering you on. And if you share a video of you and your dog's performance, I'll review those and give you my personal comments for what I think is your next level of improvement.
I create online program that you can go through on your own pace. You can go back and review the lessons as much and as often as you want. Because the course is on-line you can connect with any device. You can take the lessons and watch my training videos where I give you practical tips and demonstrate what I'm teaching.
Join me and let me help you create the agility team you've always dreamed of having, so that you can experience what it feels like to be a champion on every course you run!
