McCann Dogs Agility on Patreon

Train weekly under the influence of 20x World Agility Champion, Kayl McCann. Kayl has been a member of Team Canada for 15 years. As well as being one of the top handlers in the world, Kayl is also a Professional Dog trainer and Coach. Each week she designs new lesson plans for her students. The lessons are designed around current trends, common skills that need to be strengthened, preparation for upcoming competitions (local and International) as well as skills that are directed towards the continuous development of dogs of any level.

What is a Patreon?
Patreon is a monthly paid subscription which gives you access to Kayl’s library of Weekly Lesson plans. There are several options to choose from based on your experience level.

What's Included?:

  • New Lesson Plans Weekly including 2-4 different set ups. Each week will feature different options like skill building exercises, short or longer sequences and sometimes full course work. Some drills will include just jumps and tunnels while others will include weaves and/or contacts. Some of the drills will fit in small spaces while others would need a larger area. You’ll have a lot of drills to choose from, so you can pull the exercises that best suit your needs, time available and training area.
  • Each station will include a written explanation as well as handling suggestion and sometimes video example.
  • You will have access to all lesson plans posted prior to your registration.
  • Each month Kayl will host an Online Coaching Video Call. This will give everyone in the club a chance to ask questions, see demonstrations and be part of the discussion.
  • Each month we will discuss your training challenges and the training goals for the upcoming month!
  • You can upload your training sessions for others Patrons to view and learn from.
  • You can ask questions/make comments, just like in a facebook group.
  • There is no video review included.
There are 3 Subscription plans to choose from. All weekly lesson plans are nested. If you have access to the Tier 3, you’ll be able to train multiple levels on the same set up. This would be especially beneficial to instructors teaching classes or for handlers that are training dogs at different levels.

Tier 1 - Starters/Advanced - $24 per month - Join Now!
  • For less experienced dog & handlers
  • Those competing in Starters/Advanced levels
  • For dogs that would benefit from more open & flow sequences to encourage speed & confidence
  • Lessons include all obstacles. You can exclude any obstacles that you haven’t finished training yet.
Tier 2 - Masters Level - $39 per month - Join Now!
  • Access to my Master level lesson plans as well as the Starters/Advanced tier listed above.
  • For those competing in Advanced/Master level. My course design has a lot of flow but with challenge. It’s similar to what you would see in UKI, but I have a lot of students who compete in AAC and CKC, so we also do drills to help prepare for that as well.
  • Some lesson would include drills to work on some of the games classes.
Tier 3 - International Level - $54 per month - Join Now!
  • Access to my International Handling Lesson Plans as well as everything included in the 2 tiers above!
