The purpose of this course is to help dogs develop better obstacle skills and the owners learn how to give their dogs clear, smooth directions. This course builds on the skills acquired in foundation, concentrates on greater fluency in handling and handling cues, improves obstacle performance, and begins sequencing obstacles.
Depends on dog and handler. Classes are 6 weeks long with the owners.
Any dog, any size, any breed. See the "Prerequisites" section below.
These classes emphasize greater fluency in handling and handling cues, improve obstacle performance, and begin sequencing obstacles.
Age: 5 months old or older. Immunizations, including rabies, and a clean bill of health from your veterinarian is a must. In addition, the dog must show that he/she already knows the foundation skills or must have taken the "Foundation" course. All new students not starting at the Foundation level must do a half (1/2) an hour private lesson to asses the best class for them.
