Course Description

MaxPup Module 4: Putting It Together :: Tracy Sklenar

Take your foundation skills to the next level! Build your handling skills into short sequences, while also proofing understanding and building teamwork on course!

This class will bridge the gap between puppy training and running courses. Build your young dog’s flatwork, wing skills and one jump skills into short sequences! Proof your dog’s understanding of handling with a series of fun games while also building teamwork and connection. We will work on all aspects of handling from driving lines to getting tight turns and everything in between.

You will be able to watch demo videos of each exercise or game as well as get feedback on your work with your own dog through video review and forum discussions.
