THIS BOOK INCLUDES 2 YEARS MEMBERSHIP TO CANINE SPORTS 365 - This Canine Sports 365: Obedience, Rally Obedience and Scent Work Athlete Passport 2021, addresses frequently asked questions and outlines the syllabus of the canine and human athlete development challenges in the Canine Sports 365 training programme relating to these specific disciplines. It includes space for the athlete to record their progress through the programme. This is a must have resource for Canine Sports 365 athletes participating in only these challenges for the disciplines of the program. Pioneered by Gary Gregory, Head of Canine Sports Science at the first ever Big Lottery Funded, Canine Sports Academy. Canine Sports 365 is a multi-event, dog, and handler (athlete) development programme. It introduces athletes to the fundamental skills of Canine Sports, which are also vital in everyday dog owning life. It is aimed predominately at 2-24-month-old dogs, but the resources and challenges can easily be used for all dogs and athletes, beginning in any of the canine sports. Canine Sports 365 focuses not only on how fast a dog can complete an Agility course or how fast someone can run in Canine Cross Country but also more importantly, on developing the technical skills (‘how’ to run, and ‘how’ dogs jump, etc.) required to perform at full potential and move like a champion. In addition to technical skills, Canine Sports 365 also looks at an athlete’s physical, mental, and emotional development, as well as their lifestyle and social development, including that of their dog. The Canine Sports 365 programme is broken down into nine progressive stages. The stages can be seen as similar to progression in other sports, such as the martial arts ‘belt system’. Each stage provides the athlete with new and progressively more difficult challenges appropriate to their stage of development. Canine Sports 365 encourages athletes to learn all the skills and events of Canine Sports (including; Obedience, Rally Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Canine Cross Country, Ring Craft and Scent Work) and reinforces the important of a good all-round skill base. Through Canine Sports 365, we believe young dogs and their handlers will develop the skills and confidence to excel in life; not only in Canine Sports, but in other activities, other life pursuits and be responsible dog owners with well-behaved dogs.
