​​​​Learn About the 2016 AKC National Agility Championship Prep Course


LIFETIME ACCESS to all exercises and videos!

This course will help you and your dog excel in Tulsa by breaking down the actual courses from last year’s National Agility Championship and creating practice exercises based on challenging sequences from those courses.

Bad Dog Agility developed this prep course to:

  • provide you with video demonstrations of practice sequences that can be done with 7 jumps (or less) and a tunnel.
  • help you execute and evaluate when to use the most common handling maneuvers seen in last year’s event: the rear cross, the front cross, 270, and wraps choices.
  • challenge you with advanced sequences that may be used in this year’s event.

I loved the course. The course layout was extremely clear; it was easy to go right to the material I wanted to view and review. The course offered good course analysis and some helpful small sequences to practice one’s handling/timing. Overall, one of the best online classes that I have taken.Bonnie D. – 2014 AKC NAC Prep Course Student

Class Format

Every week, beginning January 25th, we will release a course from the event. The event consists of a Jumpers with Weaves course, a Standard course, a Hybrid Course, a Challengers Course and a Finals Course. For each course, we have created 3-4 exercises based on a section of the course. Through video demonstrations and course analyses with the Coach’s Eye, we will advise you to handle the sequence in a variety of ways so you can decide which works best for you and your dog. There will also be an 8-12 obstacle challenge sequence using the same layout. The challenge sequences have been designed to help you prepare for more difficult challenges you might see at the event.

  • Course #3: Hybrid
  • Course #4: Challengers
  • Course #5: Finals – with Sarah Baker Demonstration and Analysis

Learn From a National Champion!
This year, Sarah Baker will be contributing her expertise to help YOU prepare for this event. In 2015, Sarah won the 20″ class with her Border Collie Hops and the Preferred 20″ class with her labrador retriever Rice earning both the NAC and PNAC title at the same event.

As part of the prep course, Sarah Baker will analyze her own runs with both dogs, sharing with you her handling choices and insights. You will also get to see her demo the Finals based exercises and challenge sequence.

As an extra special bonus, Sarah has put together a bonus module with additional exercises aimed at preparing YOU to be the next National Champion!

Thank you so much for making your 2015 NAC Prep Course available!

As someone who was preparing to go to their first AKC Nationals, and who’s experience in competition has pretty much been limited to local weekend trials, I found the Bad Dog Agility Prep Course both eye-opening (in a good way), and beyond helpful. Your exercises, videos, and commentary, are so well presented; you are ‘Master Explainers’ and ‘Show and Tell Pros’.

PS. By some miracle, we ended up with a 4th Place Cumulative Score in 12″ Preferred at the 2015 NAC (!!!) I highly doubt that would have happened had I not taken your prep course. So, Thank you , Thank you, Thank you!

Don’t worry if you fall behind; you will have LIFETIME ACCESS to the material.

This course does NOT include any personal video review. However, comments will be enabled on all articles for the first 5 months. Feel free to leave comments and ask questions.

Great way to organize one’s NAC preparation. Exercise set-up was minimal and completion of the exercises helped build confidence in one’s team work.This course was better than a one day prep seminar as it covered more material and gave you time to practice different handling methods. The analysis of each course helped develop one’s skill in planning handling paths and alternatives for the 2014 NAC courses.
