Performance Coaching

Mental performance coaching helps you build tools to enhance your attitude, set the right goals and prepare to perform at your best. By combining the benefits of personal growth and mental skills you’ll gain an advantage at every competition.

Coach Kathleen has supported handlers in a variety of dog-sports, including confirmation, agility, obedience, and rally, to reach their goals.

Mental Performance Coaching is for everyone.

Whether you’re battling nerves on the start line or feel distracted by family drama while at the dog-show, I provide an individualized approach for each handler’s performance needs. We don’t just fix performance issues, handlers pursue mental performance coaching to learn more skills to boost their performance too! We’ll identify, assess and train for any and all performances you’ll encounter on your journey.

We are proud to offer a variety of online coaching services to support the performance of handlers in agility and beyond.

Coaching Services Available

Individual Coaching

An individual session is 60 minutes long via a phone call or Zoom.

You’ll work closely with Coach Kathleen to develop your own mental performance strategies and develop mental skills that support your best handling. The goal of individual sessions is for you to learn how to coach yourself through difficult training situations, conversations, challenges in the ring and beyond.

Sessions should be scheduled regularly for best results.

Discussion Group

Each week this group will discuss a new mental performance topic or learn about a mental skill with Coach Kathleen. This open enrollment class allows for handlers to share their experiences, gain useful insights, and learn strategies to boost their performance on and off the course. Participants are encouraged to share personal experiences and ask questions throughout.  

This class is offered Thursday evenings on select dates via Zoom.
