Dog Agility Handling II Task Card Pack
Handling is the nitty gritty of dog agility. There are many different schools of thought about how to handle an agility team's way through a course. As the agility courses become more and more difficult with the introduction of international level handling being more common, agility handlers need to sometimes step outside of their comfort zone.
Handling 2 is here and it is based on the newest type of handling that is gaining popularity. Handling 2 will cover the international handling skills that are becoming more and more mainstream in agility classes, seminars, and needed on courses that are becoming more challenging. Some of the maneuvers covered in Handling 2 are Jaakko Turns, Reverse Spins, and Lap Turns There are 11 different handling moves (4 cards of each task) and 4 Play! cards that make up the Agility Handling 2 task pack. There are 49 cards in total:

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.)
