Open exercises include heel free and figure eight, drop on recall, retrieve on flat, retrieve over high jump, broad jump, command discrimination, and sit-stay-get your leash. All exercises are performed off leash, although leashes will be worn in class. How the exercises are taught will depend on the individual instructor. Changing instructors enables newer students to learn a variety of teaching methods. Lessons will be tailored to the level of the students. Most students will want to take this class multiple times until their dog has learned the exercises and is ready for competition. Your dog does not have to complete a CD prior to taking this class, but should be proficient in the novice exercises.
Prerequisite: Novice Obedience
