Linda Mecklenburg's Awesome Paws Website
07 Jun 2008
Top agility competitor and trainer Linda Mecklenburg now has a website. That in itself isn’t notable, now a days most trainers have an online presence. What I like about Linda’s site is she is including some very useful reference information.
The information is a little hidden. At the bottom of the Agility Service - Instruction page there is a link to “Online Instruction”. Here is a direct link. That page has three sections:
- Course Handling Analysis
- Handling Discussion
It is worthwhile studying all the material Linda has placed under these sections. While her approach, like all top trainers, evolves slightly over time, even her oldest articles have a lot of value. Her explanations can be on the technical side because she is trying to be accurate in her descriptions.
I just came back from Linda’s camp where she, Wendy Pape and Ann Braue each taught one day. I found them all to be very positive trainers and very helpful to all levels of competitors. Wendy and Ann’s approaches (at least at this camp :^) are compatible with Linda’s handling system. I’d definitely recommend training with them and learning more about Linda’s handling system.
