Advanced Obedience Skills

This brand new online class is the next step after the Foundation Class. We will use the foundation behaviors and put them together to obedience skills and exercises, work more on stimulus control, distraction training and sequencing. This class is good for anyone who wants to work on the skills required for obedience competition in any organization. We will for example cover:

  • Putting heelwork together
  • Formal retrieve
  • Formal recall
  • Sit up
  • Starting scent discrimination
  • Games with the jump
  • Sit/stand/down from heel
  • Distance control
  • Send outs continued
  • More stimulus control
  • Starting sequencing
  • Adding distractions

As a working participant, you will follow the class with your own dog (one dog per working spot) and post video for the entire class to see. Thomas and I will of course comment on your videos and help you through all the lessons. The observers get to read and watch all material from me, watch all the posted videos, ask questions and join in on the discussions.

Class will consist of seven lessons, with two weeks in between lessons, for a total of 14 weeks. Class starts on April 23rd.
