At Avalon Ranch we offer a variety of clinics and private lessons to help you and your canine friend participate in this great sport. From beginners all the way to national competitors there is something for everyone. You can learn to run, bike, scooter, ski, snowshoe, and dog sled with your dog. All breeds can learn a variation of this sport.
Here are a couple of examples of our clinics:
INTRO Harness Sports Clinic
Learn about the various harnesses and equipment used for pulling sports and how to properly put a harness on. Get your dog used to having weight on the line and to stay ahead of you. Learn how to train your dog to progress through becoming a command leader. All equipment is provided for this clinic. You may also try on and order equipment. No experience necessary. Dogs must be at least 6 months old.
INTERMEDIATE Harness Sports Clinic
This is an opportunity for those who have either taken the intro clinic, have taken a private lesson or already have experienced dogs, to practice commands. We will cover turning onto another trail, moving over left and right on the trail, speeding up, slowing down and stopping. There will be several exercises laid out with increasing difficulty. Bring your harness, line, belt, bike or scooter.
