Course Description

2 Week Techniques: 2on/2off Proofing for Contacts :: Stacy Peardot-Goudy

This class is designed to test your dog’s knowledge of the 2on/2off contact behavior through various proofing challenges.

Do you have perfect 2on/2off contact performance in training but no 2on/2off contact performance in a trial? Then this 2 week techniques class is for you. We will focus on the proofing the 2on/2off behavior ensuring both understanding and accuracy. We will be using various proofing mechanisms to create the same stress and adrenaline found in a trial environment. The difference between perfect contacts in training, and perfect contacts in trials is your dogs ability to think in drive! Join me as we explore the best way to bridge that gap.
