Take your basic obedience skills to the next level with this competitive obedience
course. While you will learn all that is required to enter a real obedience trial,
the skills learnt can benefit anyone wanting an extra challenge and more advanced
obedience training. The attention and distraction training skills that we will focus
on are sure to benefit most dogs - whether you ever intend to trial or not!
Competitive obedience has a reputation of being ‘overly formal’ and just ‘no fun’
for the dog or handler. We believe that even in this ‘formal’ environment, the dog,
or handler for that matter, should never feel like they are working. With that in
mind, fun games are used to teach the formal skills necessary to create a dog that
enjoys working with you - one that believe it is a GAME rather than a job!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Group sit/down stays
Sit/Stand for examination
Fun games to help build a great relationship
Classes are SIX WEEKS in length
Group sizes are FIVE DOGS MAX.
