This class aims to build on the exercises learned on the Intro Course.
Still using ‘fun’ methods for training, handlers will by now be giving, and dogs understanding, both voice and hand signal commands, repeat commands should be eliminated and handlers become proficient in the timing of and appropriate rewarding of their dog.
Adding polish to the exercises learned in the earlier classes including;
- improving heelwork further.
- increasing the length of ‘stays’.
Dogs move on to Class 2 where off-lead work is introduced.
