What to Expect

This class focuses on teaching the dog to complete obstacle sequences independently and teaching the handler how to handle and reinforce dogs for more independent performance.


Dog-handler teams must be able to safely perform most obstacles (other than weave poles and teeter) and to sequence 3-5 obstacles. Dog participants must be able to reliably come to the handler when called, focus on the handler in a distracting environment, and share the class field with other dogs and people safely.
