Course Description

MaxPup 1: Teamwork and Play :: Sklenar/Clarke

This is a comprehensive series of courses designed to build the Maximum Foundation for your Performance Puppy!

The first course in the MaxPup series is the most important. We will build the foundation for teamwork, focus, drive and most importantly: PLAY! All of this will be built through a series of motivational games and you will have the unique opportunity to get feedback from 2 instructors, who are also raising puppies. You will be able to watch videos of the instructors’ pups, as well as get feedback on your work with your own pup through video and forum discussions.
