An amazingly talented group of agility coaches gathered into Finland to kick-off the OneMind Dogs coach pilot.
In just four days, the OneMind Dogs head coaches Janita Leinonen and Jaakko Suoknuuti guided the pilot group through OneMind Dogs method including everything from foundation training to advanced handling techniques.

All the coaches that were selected to the pilot group already knew a lot about the OneMind Dogs method and are extremely talented. The pilot lasts until end of this year and in 2016 our target is to open the OneMind Dogs Coach Program for other great handlers as well. We want to to develop a global network of agility coaches who will spread the word about high quality agility training and the OneMind Dogs method.
Our precious pilot participants from 11 different countries have now gone back to their home countries. During 2015 we will be working together with them to further develop the OneMind Dogs method and the coaching program. The lucky students of the coaches will have a chance to try out some of the OneMind Dogs exercises planned by the coach pilot group. We warmly recommend you to attend the trainings of the future OneMind Dogs pro coaches and become a premium member to strengthen your skills also outside the classes.
