Course Description

Commit! Training Games for Complete Jump Commitment :: Stacy Peardot-Goudy

This class is all about Commitment! Teach your dog independent jump commitment from the ground up to maximize your handling and expand your options on course.

All handling depends on great jump commitment, whether it is ‘meat & potatoes’, distance work, or complex handling maneuvers. This class will focus on teaching independent obstacle commitment, starting with the flat area necessities through total commitment. We will discuss commitment to all obstacles but the exercises will be done on a jump.
