Course Description

RUN: Drive Yourself and Your Dog To Your Fullest Potential :: Stacy Peardot-Goudy

Learn a proactive handling style to attack the course to get your best results! Eliminate spectator syndrome and handle your dog like the Champion that is within us all!

Increase your speed and drive on course through a more proactive handling style! In this class you will work on short sequences that push you to “RUN” to your obstacles while maintaining focus on your handling and timeliness of cues. We will also be working on powering out of your transitions for smooth and speedy course flow and efficiency!

This class is all about trusting yourself, trusting your dog, and, putting the energy into the “RUN” that produces the most efficient path from start to finish. You don’t have to be a World class athlete or in perfect shape for this class, you have to be willing to give it all you have got in order to get the very best out of you and your dog!

This is an advanced level handling class so your dog must be proficient with sequencing and understand the basic handling maneuvers such as side changes, etc.
