Course Description

2 Week Techniques: Contact Board Proofing for Fast, Reliable Stopped Contacts (Part 2) :: Melanie Miller

Are your dog’s stops perfect in training but unreliable at a trial?  Do you wish for more contact independence?  Does your dog get creepy and lose time on the contacts?  Find out how to take advantage of a simple training tool in ways you haven’t considered before.  

We will spend 2 weeks building a solid, fast, reliable and independent contact behavior.  Melanie will show a step by step process that is fun for the dog, requires no actual contact equipment and will challenge the most advanced agility partners, making contacts in a trial setting feel easy by comparison.
