Open Obedience

This class introduces teaching and training methods for the Open Obedience exercises: heeling (off lead); drop on recall; dumb-bell retrieve; high jump; broad jump; signal exercises; stand stay – get your leash.  Each class will review some standard obedience practices relative to establishing a performance team but will also develop approaches to exercises unfamiliar to the team.  This class is about developing a positive progressive teaching / training approach; some distractions will be used as appropriate.  This class will not be advanced enough to prepare a team to enter an Open Obedience competition but will provide a foundation for ongoing training. 

Prerequisite: Novice Obedience

Length of classes: 8 weeks
