Our Philosophy

 

 

I firmly believe that the ultimate goal of participation in dog sports, whether for serious competition or just for fun, should be to increase the overall quality of a dog's life and to build a mutual partnership of joy and trust between dog and handler.  Therefore, in all classes offered through Poised for Success, I strive to combine good quality skill building with patience and a sense of humor.  My hope is that every class will help you and your dog come to know and trust one another more deeply, and increase your enjoyment of working together through performance to music.

Introduction to Parkour Titling

 

 

Are you interested in titling in the sport of Canine Parkour?

 

If so, this is the class for you!

 

In this class, I will guide you through the process of creating videos to submit for Parkour titling.

Topics will include:

 

  • Creating the Parkour Interaction Clip:  Setting up the camera, camera angles, when to start and stop the video, featuring the Interaction, what to show and how to show it!

  • Knowing what to film and how to set up for filming

  • General rules and guidelines

  • Spotting and Safety

  • Choosing the titling venue for your team, or - considerations for titling in both Canine Parkour titling venues

  • Evaluating a video clip for titling submission

  • What do to when a clip is "iffy"

  • Moving Up the Levels

  • Examples of qualifying entries will be shared and discussed

 

This class is appropriate for teams of all levels.  If you have never filmed for Canine Parkour before, this class can help you get started!  If you have already submitted videos for titling, this class can provide support for creating further submissions.

In this class, students are welcome to share videos for instructor feedback.

Although no lectures are planned on the topic of training any particular Interactions, training questions are welcome, and training instruction will be provided up on request.
