You probably think that the secret to success in agility is having long legs and a naturally gifted dog. Well actually, you can use slow motion video feedback to pinpoint the exact changes you should make in your head and body position, motion, footwork and arms in order to make the right move with perfect timing. You can also use motivational training techniques and reward schedules to increase your dog's speed over obstacles and on courses.
As a VIP member, you'll have access to the personalized feedback, demonstration videos, and social support you need to improve your performance in the ring. You'll be able to get rid of personal frustration and confusion.
“The best part about the BDA VIP Program without question is Sarah and Esteban. They have a way of understanding the novice mind and breaking down complex agility maneuvers for beginners like me like no one else can. Their feedback and the VIP content has been key to my improvement as a handler and dog trainer in general. I would recommend the VIP Program to anyone looking for a true partner in their training and growth overall as an agility competitor.” -- Xenia S.
Personalized handling feedback from Sarah and Esteban on trial runs, practice sequences, and VIP exercises.
Personalized assistance with your contact obstacle, weave pole, and start line problems.
Individual help with ring nerves, course memorization, and visualization.
"My favorite feature of being a VIP member include the monthly short sequences and the video demos of real dogs running them using different handling moves. The clarity of seeing the options really helps me want to try each variation on my own instead staying within my comfort zone. Thank you for pushing me and helping me grow my skills!"
"I have learned so much in my first year as a BDA VIP. I love that I can print off drills, watch videos of different handling options and then walk out and give it a try. I don't think I've utilized more that 40% of what is offered and yet I still feel like being a VIP is a great deal. BDA VIP is a bargain at any price, especially if you train alone."
"I have never competed in agility, but I am entering my first trial this summer and that is in large part due to the information and what I have learned from the folks at Bad Dog Agility VIP. Thank you!!"

If you were to try and create a similar VIP program for yourself, you would attend a weekly class, go to a few seminars, and have weekly private lessons--and it would cost you thousands of dollars every year.
We started Bad Dog Agility to provide high quality, low-cost instruction for agility folks. Keeping that in mind, we are very happy to offer the VIP for just $69/month---well below what you would pay if you tried to create your own version of it.
Take a look at the chart below to get an idea of how much money you are saving by investing in the VIP program.

"Five Stars…2 Thumbs up. Whatever rating scale you choose, Bad Dog Agility is the best you can ask for at very low cost. Sarah and Esteban Fernandezlopez give you everything you need and those other things you didn’t know you were missing. I joined their VIP program and simply love it. It provides exceptional breadth and depth for the agility enthusiast. In my opinion Sarah and Esteban offer the best array of programs I have ever encountered."
"I especially like the training exercises and your discussion of lines, deceleration and cueing. I used much of that info in the classes that I teach as well as improving my own handling. Your classes are just the right mixture of training the dog and training the handler for me."
"The fact I can video my sessions and review them and send them off via YouTube for my instructor’s review is priceless."
