Course Description

When I say Jump! Jump Drills for Functional Skills :: Stacy Peardot-Goudy

This class is designed to improve and maintain your dog’s functional jumping skills.

This class will provide drills to test your dog's “functionality” over jumps. Jumping is the primary behavior on all agility courses, your dog needs to know how to “use” himself properly in order to get over all styles of jumps from any distance, angle, and, speed. In this class we will go beyond foundational jumping form and really test your dog's ability to function over a jump in all of these various scenarios.
