Handling with focus on dog training and jumping with Canadian agility trainer Jessica Martin of Agile Dogtraining.
Jessica has many years of experience training dogs of all breeds and competes against the best in the agility world each year. Jessica’s greatest accomplishment to date is winning the 2010 FCI World Championship in Germany with her young dog “Dice”. She and Dice are currently the only Canadian team to have won this prestigious event.
Jessica’s goal as an instructor is to help every dog and handler team reach their full potential. Unlike many instructors that just focus on the fast, naturally driven dogs she has experience with building confidence and motivation in the less driven or worried dogs and bringing out the best in them. Jessica has also worked with very intense, driven dogs and helped them gain consistency and control without diminishing speed. She believes the best agility dogs should be “balanced” in their skill sets.
She has trained under the finest trainers including Adrian Rooyakkers, Susan Garrett, Greg Derrett and Laura Derrett.
Jessica uses the Greg Derrett handling system which is known to maintain maximum efficiency and speed on course. She promotes positive and motivational methods of training which are fun for both the dogs and their handlers.
Jessica has shown her agility handling skills on several different dogs.
