Black Friday Special: Limited Time Re-Opening
The Agility World Championship Experience
The FCI Agility World Championship has a powerful influence on our sport. Each year, as soon as it ends, instructors and competitors around the world set up courses from the event and run them in their yards and practice fields. Judges take elements from the course designs and incorporate them into their own.
In this video series, you will get an in-depth look at all four runs at the 2018 FCI Agility World Championship from a medal contender in each of the three height classes: small, medium, and large.
Tobias Wüst (Small Dog)
Tobias is the reigning FCI World Champion for small dogs with his Sheltie Dörte, having crushed the field in 2017 by over 2 seconds to capture individual gold. Unbelievably, he was also the FCI World Champion for small dogs with his Sheltie Peanut the year before that. Tobias and Peanut also won the European Open in 2013 and 2014.

Jennifer Crank (Medium Dog)
In the past year, Jennifer has won the AKC 16" National Championship, the Westminster 16" Championship, and the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge with her Border Collie P!nk, while medaling at the World Agility Open, making the Challenger round at the AKC National Championship, and winning the USDAA Cynosport 16" Steeplechase with her Sheltie Swift. This will be Swift's first appearance at the AWC. In 2006, Jennifer captured the overall individual silver medal at the FCI Agility World Championship in Switzerland with her Sheltie Guess. She followed that up with the overall individual bronze the following year in Norway.

Jessica Patterson (Large Dog)
Jessica will run two border collies at this event, Trix and Lux. In 2015, Jessica won the European Open with Trix and finished 5th in the overall individual competition at the 2014 FCI Agility World Championship.

BONUS: Foundation Training for Backsides
Together with partner Justine Davenport, Jessica Patterson runs Shape Up Agility in Canada. Their handling innovations have influenced handlers throughout the world. As part of the AWC Experience, Jessica will share how she teaches backside jumping to her dogs, from the ground up! Backsides are a fundamental part of international agility course work, and can be found in nearly every championship final in every organization around the world.
For Jessica, the verbal cue is critical as she wants the dog to “understand the verbal cue even though we will try our best to help them with physical cues on course.” Does your dog have trouble with commitment to the backside? Does your dog refuse the backside unless you give them a lot of help with your body position and motion? Do you have trouble blind crossing after a backside? Working through the Shape Up foundation method will strengthen your dog’s backside understanding and give you more flexibility in your handling.

Every run analysis will be uploaded as quickly as possible so that you can follow the event in close to real-time!

Frequently Asked Questions
Will you analyze the course maps?
Course maps are often not available before the run at the Agility World Championship. Therefore, we will NOT include any course map analysis in the video series. This video series is based on the "Before and After" concept that Bad Dog Agility followers are familiar with from the AKC Nationals and Westminster, however it only includes the "After" analysis component.
When does registration close?
Registration will close at 11:59pm EST November 26th, 2018.
What equipment/space do I need?
None! We believe there is great value in analyzing competitor runs. We make this a part of our own training as we analyze courses from large events and break down some of the best runs by our fellow competitors. This course does not include any exercises for you to perform with your dog. Instead it focuses on the skills of course analysis and video analysis.
P.S. Don't miss this great course that requires NO space and NO equipment! Improve your course planning skills and learn how to analyze runs to get better, faster.
