Welcome to Fluid Motion Agility and Wellness, home to  Amanda Nelson agility training, coaching, nutrition and canine fitness.  Located in Ontario, Oregon,  Amanda has been involved in the dog world for over 30 years, and she currently travels the country coaching agility teams, and teaching seminars with a focus on teamwork, connection, and commitment skills. Amanda also lectures on canine nutrition, making choices for commercial foods, raw foods, and more! 

Fluid Motion was born of Amanda’s desire to create exercises, training programs, and health programs that help create smooth and fluid teamwork between dog and handler, both mentally and physically.  

Please contact Amanda if you are interested in hosting a seminar.

What People are Saying:

“I have been happy to work with Amanda on multiple occasions. I had a non traditional, motivationally challenged breed (a Frenchie). Amanda helped us build speed, confidence and distance. She is excellent with working at every level and with every type of teams- from super fast Border Collies to French Bulldogs. Her skills as an instructor are excellent. She is able to break each skill down so the team is successful. Highly recommend.”Lori K.

What People are Saying:

“I have taken several seminars with Amanda with different dogs, and one of the reasons to work with her is that she always meets you where you are and guides you with a combination of knowledge, confidence, and humor. Every time she offers a seminar close to me, I try to attend because I always gain new skills for my skill box and new ways of thinking. Amanda also continues to evolve as a trainer and handler, which not many do, and which I appreciate. Finally, I what I respect the most about her training and why I would unequivocally recommend her to anyone at any level with any skill set and any dog, is that her approach to training is centered around the belief that training is a partnership that is built on trust.” Kris D.

Practice the Positive!

I don’t want those thoughts of “all the things that went wrong” to occupy my headspace for the rest of the trial. Because if I let that happen, it will continue to loop for the rest of the day and each run could continue to loop those negative thoughts.

Troubleshooting Your Start Line

I feel that most dogs with start line issues are lacking full understanding of the criteria. Add in, that some dogs also have issues handling over arousal, and that can be a mixture that causes dogs not holding their start line, bolting out of the leash, creeping, etc.
