Dog Agility Foundation Task Card Pack
These foundation tasks are primarily taught at the beginner class level for a new agility team. Foundation tasks are also very valuable for the experienced agility team too. These tasks make sure the basic skills needed for a successful agility run are maintained. The exercises covered are primarily ground work, teaching the team the foundation of handling like deceleration, and what needs to happen at the start line. There are 8 specific task cards (4 cards of each task) and 4 Play! cards that make up the foundation task pack. There are 37 cards in total:
- Header Card
- Deceleration Cards
- Flatwork Cards
- Go On Cards
- Recall into Heel after 1 Jump Cards
- Recall into Heel after 2 Jumps Cards
- Recall into Heel on the Flat Cards
- Recall into Heel After an Obstacle Cards
- Start Line Stay Cards
- Play!! Cards

How to use the Train 'Em Tasks system:
The task cards are to be used with the Train 'Em Tasks linen grab bags. To make your daily training game plan, pull a couple of task cards from your grab bag and train those exercises. For obedience I might pull 3 - 5 cards and work each exercise for 5 - 10 minutes depending on the task. For agility, I will pull two task cards and pick drills, sequences, or a course that will work those tasks. After you have completed your tasks, you can put them back into your bag or set them side until your bag is empty. That way, you can make sure you and your dog work all of your tasks (I personally have a separate bag for spent tasks.)
