The Bad Dog Agility Approach to SUCCESS at Your Next Trial

Why You Need This Prep Course

Every year, more and more competitors are taking our prep courses, getting personalized feedback on their practices, and making their way into the Finals of national level events like the American Kennel Club (AKC) Invitational.

In this prep course, we share with you our exact approach to trial preparation in an easy-to-understand way that won't leave you feeling overwhelmed or confused.

Keep in mind that not everyone who takes this course actually attends the AKC Invitational. For those handlers, past Invitational events are the source of the sequences they run in training, and everything they learn helps them run better at their weekend trials.

What our students are saying:

I feel ready for the invitational.

I learned a lot from the insightful analysis of the courses and exercises. Then it was fun to set up the sequences and try them with my dog! I feel ready for the invitational.

We exceeded those goals by miles!

I wanted to let you know that I think this course really helped me prepare and be successful at the AKC Agility Invitational. This was my first time being invited to the invitational. The exercises, videos, and course analysis really helped us practice and helped me be a lot better at analyzing courses and planning what I’d do on course. I really liked that the exercises were easy to set up.


My goals in going to the invitational were basically to have fun, keep him happy, and to do the very best that I could. We exceeded those goals by miles! Astro and I ran clean in all four rounds and made finals! Thank you so much!
