Novice (Level 3)

Saturdays 9:00 am – 10:15 am (“winter” time)
Instructor: Lauren Goldberg

Prerequisite: Dog/handler teams can safely and independently perform most obstacles (can be completing weave pole and teeter training). Teams should be able to sequence 3-5 obstacles, including backsides of jumps, dogwalk, and Aframe.

Sequencing is the primary focus of this class. In this class, dog/handler teams are introduced to common patterns and challenges such as serpentines, boxes, threadles, contact/tunnel discriminations, layering, and novice distance challenges. The goal is to prepare students for novice level courses in AKC, NADAC, and USDAA by applying skills learned in Level 2.
