I know how difficult the agility journey can be

In fact, I’ve faced many training challenges in my life with both my dogs and my students’ dogs, alike.

Sensitivity, over-excitement, issues with motivation, physical limitations… You name it I thought I’ve seen it all.

Until my young dog, Kobra came into my life.

She was something special.

At the age of 6 months, she was able to generate so much power that she overtook adult agility dogs with ease.

She had no intention of taking anything slow.

She was all in.

As good as that might sound – it was a challenge.

Her body was just exploding.

She even managed to break my tooth during one of our play sessions…

At times I even felt a little overwhelmed with her power and energy.

On the other hand, she is an extremely sensitive girl and she always wants to please me – so whenever her body couldn’t handle a task, she would worry that she had disappointed me.

With all of that, building a balance between precision and speed sometimes proved to be a challenge.

I’VE REALIZED THAT I NEED TO DEVELOP A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH

One that is based on building
understanding and precision.

A program that would help Kobra be more aware of her body, help her stay safe during our training and ensure she felt proud of herself, while simultaneously nurturing her speed and power on the field.

So, I set out to study how dogs move when performing the foundational agility exercises. I did so to perfect my program – one where Kobra’s young body would be set up for success.

Today I can say that she was a true inspiration and, thanks to her, the program I have created for you here is truly special because its focus is on building an understanding of the exercises on the field and on building body awareness.

In addition, I can guarantee you that during my course your dog will have fun and that they will be set up for success every step of the way. That’s my value and I stick to it by using a variety of rewards and by always being resourceful!

I am now a better trainer and competitor because of Kobra! I don’t shy away from challenges, thoroughly enjoy finding new solutions and strive to raise my students’ skills.

I think the most valuable thing she has taught me is how to set dogs up for success, how to build an understanding of different jumping sequences and to never give up!

I am as excited as ever to be able to pass this knowledge on to my students too!

Here’s what my students
have got to say about this course:

“One of the best foundation classes
I did so far (and I did a lot 😜).”

“Kandik graduated from the Essential Agility Training Skills with Beata Luchowska. Beata puts great focus on the dog´s health with a lot of super effective exercises. I am really happy with the foundations we laid down. 💪😀”

Elisabeth Fitzthum

“A lot of basics, technical skills, body language, dog fitness, and also some awesome challenges.” 🔥

“Finally I can post our 🎓 Graduation Video of Beata Luchowska’s and Dogs4motion Academy for active dogs’ course – Essential Agility Training Skills. 🐾

I’m so happy with the work we’ve done during these 4 months with my little 🐿️Squirrel Sissi. Thank you once more Beata! Can’t wait for the continuation!” ❤ 😊

Ania Jaworska

“I have been enjoying agility with my dogs for nearly 20 years and this is the first time I have learned such meaningful basics!«”

THIS IS FOR YOU IF

Ready to receive personalized guidance on your agility journey?

Let my students tell you why they loveD IT

This course is an exceptional resource for developing communication/handling for the dog and handler through foundation skills that can be tought using short, loopy training sessions for clarity and then used as a reference to go back and build and master those foundation same skills with consistency as the team progresses.

Using this course as a template has allowed my youngest boy and ito progress without frustration. Thank you! Perfect addition to the rest of the course offerings on this platform!

Patti Waddell, Canada

I have so many good things to say about this course. It is very organized and easy to follow. I love that there is a written explanation with diagrams to go along with the videos. It helps to clarify the exercise and I learn a lot from them.

The videos are well done and I have watched them multiple times because I notice different things each time I watch them.

I love the self-study format because it allows me to understand what I am to be doing before I work with my dog. Now our training sessions have a plan and a purpose and I know what the next steps are for future sessions.

Chris Kulan, US

Beata’s awareness of being careful with the training of young dogs was evident throughout. Things I particularly liked was The Pointing Game. The steps presented built an understanding of this cue at a distance.

I thought her presentations on discriminations and verbals had some great ideas to help build understanding in a fair manner to the dog. I really liked the training of the double threadle with the tight turn cue and the pole to emphasize to come to the take-off side of the next jump as early as possible before the next jump. I have always tried to do this with handling but I like the pole to help make it clear to the dog as well! Also like the exercise with the tunnel to the threadle jump.

Great for students and for dogs who you need to keep energized. Overall some great ideas to add to my training! Glad I signed up.

Barbara Davis, US

The weekly planner is really helpful, all the lessons are clear, and easy to follow. I really liked the sequences, they show the perfect development of the training, from easy to harder exercises. They are also tips for smalles, more sensitive dogs, the course is not just about border collies. I highly recommend this course, especially if you love the structure, and following steps, and tick off boxes/tasks 🙂

Anges Fulop, Hungary

Just imagine feeling…

Relieved with the guidance you’re getting with my step-by-step instructions.
Like you can depend on your dog at the start line.
Supported on every step of your agility journey.
Confident as your dog’s trainer and knowing that you are teaching them all the age-appropriate agility skills.
Certain of how to perform any handling move.
Aware of which reward you should choose to suit your dog.
Proud of your dog’s independence on the course.
Capable of using different handling options with your dog.
Connected with your dog and being a true team on the course, and outside it.
Like you’re a part of a small community who you can depend on, progress together with, and see how they progress too.
Certain that we will find solutions to any challenge that comes our way, even if a session of yours didn’t work out.
Capable of bringing your dog’s best performance to light – not only during your training sessions but also during competitions.

There are 2 key pillars you will master with this course:

1.

Improve your agility skills

With thorough guidelines, this course will teach you all the essential agility skills you need to succeed on the field with your dog. The guidelines include:

  • Single jump training
  • Listening and commitment games
  • Verbal discrimination practice
  • Putting everything together into short sequences
  • Teaching various tunnel skills
  • Building an understanding of how to use your body language
  • Learning how to improve your handling

2.

Develop a reliable system that works for both you and your dog​

Together we will find the approach and build the agility skills that will make you and your dog a great team. You will get the chance to incorporate the individualized handling advice I will give you (for running a course with serpentines, turns, crosses or threadless).

You will lay the necessary foundations for further obstacle discrimination skills (through listening games and by building obstacle oriented focus).

You will learn how to teach your dog various jumping skills (such as left/right turns, backsides, threadless or flicks) in a positive manner that works for your dog.

As a trainer, I recognize and cherish the fact that every dog is an individual. I have incorporated this insight into the way I reward each dog.

You can expect to learn how, and when, to reward your dog, what reward to use depending on the dog’s personality and what to use depending on the goal of the exercise.

Every dog is on their way to becoming a champion in their own right – but every dog walks their own path, at their own speed so don’t be discouraged!

Let my students tell you why they loveD IT

“Thanks to Beata we participated in our first competition!”

I met Beata 3 years ago when I started my adventure with agility. Beza, my small mixbreed dog, requires a lot of work and patience. Thanks to Beata we participated in our first competition. She pays attention to details. She showed us how to train correctly and how to prepare a dog to avoid injuries.

Thanks to her online training I’ve learned how to explain the basics of agility to my puppy. Everything is easy-to-understand. The material is full of knowledge and important comments that are useful in training. I believe that Beata has great skills in transferring knowledge and will be able to help everyone, even if you are not an easy student – like me

Karolina Augustyn, Poland

“Great for both beginners and more advanced handlers alike. I learned a lot!”

I am very happy that I’ve decided to take part in online agility trainings with Beata. Her exercises are great for both beginners and for more advanced handlers who own a new young dog.

Both me and my dog have learned a lot! The material is presented in a clear way. I received feedback on my videos and questions regularly, so I could correct mistakes on a daily basis.

Natalia Karpinska, Poland

Videos were super helpful and Beata was always there to help out with individual problems.

We had so much fun during online course with Beata Luchowska! Beata is a fantastic instructor, very knowledgeable and detail oriented. All skills were explained thoroughly, videos were super helpful and Beata was always there to help out with individual problems.

Essential Agility Training Skills provides you with plenty of foundation exercises, a clear approach and a detail-oriented instructor – highly recommended

BOTTOM LINE…

We all know how difficult it can be to self-study your way into a sport you don’t have that much experience in right? A mentor can help you reach the stars, whether you’re just starting out or if you’re seeking a new perspective.

That’s why I’m here to help guide you on your agility journey today! Teach your dog obstacle-related technical skills, become a better handler, master your body language and more, with this course NOW!

Does this Suit me?

The course is suitable for dogs who are at a minimum age of 7 months, or more. It is appropriate for beginners, or for dogs who are already in training but could benefit from improving their listening skills or jumping behaviours.

To build solid foundations all you will need is a jump, and a cone (or pole). However, once we progress to the sequences part of the course, you will need access to 3 jumps and a tunnel.

You can teach, and perform, most of the exercises in an area that has enough space to fit one jump and an extra couple of meters for you to reward your dog. There are some lessons that require access to a small agility field with 3 jumps and a tunnel though.

Technical Questions

You will have lifetime access to all of the material from the date you’ve entered.

That means you can restart it, refresh your knowledge and start with other dogs anytime in the future.

If you enroll as a working spot, you’ll receive my feedback for 12 weeks. 📝

Yes. The access to the content platform is lifetime, and it is very easy to use and navigate. Additionally, PDFs are available for download.

Currently, the course is only available in English, but it does come with English subtitles. However, we do plan on translating the subtitles into other languages in the future, so please follow us for updates.
