If you have a desire and passion to perform at your best, then you need a strong mental game and a plan to achieve your dreams. Maybe you need to control your ring nerves, or maybe you're afraid to fail. Perhaps you're easily thrown off your game or need support getting into the zone. Regardless of what is getting in your way, something is keeping you from achieving your goals. Let's create a new mindset—one that has you knocking down your goals!
The Q-Confidence Masterclass was created to help handlers overcome the mental obstacles keeping them from performing at their best. From addressing general performance anxiety to learning how to stay focused and "in the zone" to overcoming big fears and traumas, this Masterclass will help you build the confidence you need to succeed, whether you're competing in local trials or national events.
During this course, you will adopt skills and tools that cultivate confidence in yourself while building rituals and habits to support you. Mental "toughness" under pressure is a skill that we can learn and hone—just like any handling skill.
You will learn:
- Tools and practices to conquer ring nerves
- What separates confident handlers from the rest
- How confidence can be created and nurtured
- The mindset you need to be a successful, happy handler
- How to turn confidence into results
- Skills to stay present and focused under pressure
- How to set goals that support your confidence
- How to overcome fears and past negative experiences
This comprehensive approach to developing confidence is appropriate for all experience levels and all performance sports.
You can start this self-study course whenever you like. It includes five lessons that you can complete at your own pace. There are no fixed deadlines or due dates.

For more than a decade, Julie has been successfully competing in agility with her "non-traditional" Berners. She says, "My passion for the mental game and what makes competitors win in the ring began as a kid when I was a nationally-ranked equestrian in the hunter/jumpers. When I got into agility I was surprised there wasn’t a focus on goal-setting or working on the mental game in any real way, and yet we are half of our team." So Julie created programs and personal coaching to give handlers the tools they need to be mentally strong so they can deliver great performances when it counts. Now, Julie assists handlers in breaking through performance blocks, setting goals that build confidence and results, providing tools to enable handlers to compete successfully under pressure. She says, "I believe mental toughness is a skill that we can learn and hone—just like any handling skill. I hope more handlers look to the same tools elite athletes use in order to improve their results in the agility ring."
Julie has been a contributing writer for Clean Run and provides one-on-one coaching in addition to workshops, and online courses though The Q Coach. Julie and her dogs have competed in the AKC Agility Invitational, the Westminster Agility Championship and the AKC Rally Championship. She is a draft (carting) judge for the Bernese Mountain Dog Club and teaches agility, puppy foundation, obedience, and rally at A Click Above in Leesburg, Virginia.
