Skills for Dog Sports
Want to do more with your dog? Dog Sports Skills will give you and your dog the foundation for a variety of sports: Rally, agility, competitive obedience, freestyle, etc. Handlers new to dog sports training will get an overview of what each sport entails and what qualities and training are required to be successful. Exercises will build focus and attention skills, introduce working on both sides of the handler, and shape several complex behavior sequences, such as going out to a target and circling an object.

Prerequisite: successfully completing Advanced Obedience or Family Pet Manners and comfort working around other dogs in a distracting environment.
Class Length: 1 hour class meeting for 6 weeks
