TRAINING and DEVELOPMENT
AUDIT TO LEARN FROM THE TEAM!
Each team member on the AAC National team participates in the team’s online training forum. Each month new international type sequences are posted and members upload videos of their dogs running the sequences, sometimes in various ways. In this way, team members mentor and learn from each other.
Sequences are derived from the challenges preferred by the judges in the upcoming IFCS World Agility Championships.
Auditors on the site have the advantage of seeing various sequences run different ways, by different members of the team; and can see what works best for different dogs, heights, and handlers. Becoming an auditor is as easy as clicking a button, and the $50 fee can be paid online, giving you total access to all the sequences and videos.
The auditing program has proven to be really popular, drawing members from as far away as Australia!
