Course Description

Sensational Side Changes: The Mechanics behind the Maneuvers! :: Stacy Peardot-Goudy

This class will focus on training both you and your dog the mechanics behind a perfect Front Cross, Rear Cross, and Blind Cross.

Side changes are an important yet often-overlooked basic handling need! There is more to a fantastic side change than simply getting there! In this 4 week class we will break the side changes down and evaluate how to teach both the handler and the dog their responsibilities in the proper execution of the most commonly used side changes.
