These three books provide step-by-step instructions for the agility enthusiast, from beginning to advanced levels of competition.

Setting a high standard together with consistent and clear communication with your dog is important in developing a great working relationship so that your dog becomes fast and reliable. Detailed lesson plans are given for training classes, and a very useful problem-solving appendix gives in-depth answers to many common questions. --Dog World Magazine - January, 2008

4-Paws up for book 2 in the Excelling at Dog Agility "series" by Jane Simmons-Moake!
This extraordinary guide takes you from beginner to intermediate using easy-to-follow text loaded with pictures, diagrams, and tons of sample exercises. Get started with straight line and simple turn sequences then move at your own pace to distance control and "side-switches." Simmons-Moake is extremely thorough in her method and emphasizes not striving for "good" but for excellence! Her method makes it practically impossible to fail. Some of the important topics in this book are the introduction of distance and control commands, gaining distance with her "distance circles" technique, and how to give correct body cues for accurate performance every time. She also touches on the controversial concept of "correction-free training." To top off a wonderful "curriculum" of doggy schooling, she includes several pages of exercises you can do with just a few obstacles to drill key elements or your dog's weaknesses.
A few other features I really enjoyed:
· LOTS of diagrams!
· Tips for solving problems like broken start-line stays
· Proofing ideas and exercises
· An entire chapter on every type of side-switch imaginable! (including rear-cross, front-cross, counter rotations, zig-zags, and more!)
...and for those who are agility instructors or thinking of teaching agility, there are sample lesson plans for a 6-week Beginners class, 8-week Intermediate class, and 6-week Intermediate II class.
I cannot stop praising this book! It has certainly improved the performance of my own dogs and allowed me to progress more quickly with proven techniques. It is the perfect addition to any agility lover's bookshelf!

Before reading this book, I read the Intermediate's Guide to Dog Agility, so my opinion is out of comparing them to each other. This book was harder to follow, whereas the IGtDA went through things step-by-step and built onto previous exercises. This book also includes compulsion and demands the dog be very obedient. This may work for some handlers, and dogs, but many of us like to train agility with very little, if any, force. While there are things one can learn from this book, it probably is much more useful if you can watch the videos that go with it. However, because I'm not really into her training methods, I won't be purchasing those videos to see how much difference that makes. If you are trying to understand the game of agility better and take your handling to the next level, I'd recommend the Intermediate's Guide over this, hands down.

Excellent book would highly recommend it especially for people who are just starting in agility and are confused as to where to start. Very easy to understand and it takes you step by step.

I like the fact that it explains what the dog will do wrong if you give the wrong signals, it also explains how to do it right.
