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.

 

 

 

All Are Welcome!

 

 

Poised for Success Freestyle welcomes all handlers, and we strive to show the utmost respect and regard for all who choose to participate in our titling program, online classes, and creative contests.

We are committed to promoting respect for all participants, appreciation for the artistic contribution of each team, and the health, safety, and well-being of those who choose to take part in all that we offer.

Have you ever wanted to try Canine Musical Freestyle?

 

Whether you are interested in titling, or dancing with your dog for fun, Musical Freestyle is a dog sport that you can start to learn right in your own home!

All you need is your dog a few feet of space, your dog, and some music!

 

In online class, I will provide an introduction to:

 

  • The most popular basic Freestyle moves, and how to train them
  • Working with your dog to music
  • Super easy prop moves
  • Living Room Heelwork

 

Then, we will progress to:

     

  • The basics of Sequencing
  • Exploration of cue styles
  • Artistic skills, such as creating transitions, flow, and contrast
  • Training techniques and tools for Freestyle
  • Pre-choreographed sequences
  • And … how to improv!

Fabulous Foundations!

Starting April 14, 2020

 

 

 

Recently, All Dogs Parkour introduced a brand new “Foundation Skills Titling Program”.

 

 

This is completely separate from all other tracks in All Dogs Parkour, and is open to all dogs and puppies over the age of 12 weeks, and to dogs who have completed ADP titles before, and those who have not!

The Foundation Skills titles can be completed as an introduction for a dog or puppy who is new to Canine Parkour, as a way to maintain skills and accomplish something new with an adult dog, and as an activity for senior dogs!

 

 

In this six week class, I will introduce the exercises and skills in the first two Levels of the Foundation Skills titles, present options for training them, and provide guidance and support for teams working on these titles.  Video skills can be discussed upon request.

 

 

 

Come and join us for this fun introduction!
