Course Description: This workshop is the first of a two-part series that will give developing teams a chance to work on some important, upper-level skills from the ground up. Teams will have a chance to build skill and competency on cuing and executing backside sends, backside blind crosses and 270 turns. Dogs will also have a chance to alternate focused work with a chance to open up, run and have fun.
Teams will have the chance to test these skills on a simplified AKC ISC course in Young Dogs International Foundation Part 2. This workshop is scheduled for April 22.
