Episode 258: Four Stages of Competence

In this episode (38:23)

This podcast is taken from a live video presentation. In this podcast, Sarah, Esteban and Jennifer discuss how handlers acquire competence in dog agility. Instructors usually talk about training the dog, but we believe the handler has even more to learn than the dog!

You Will Learn

  • How to apply the four stages of competence to dog agility.
  • How determining your stage of competence can reduce your frustrations.
  • How agility handling is like driving a car.
  • The stage where most agility trainers get stuck.
