Course Description

2on 2off Contacts: Follow Up and Proofing :: Annette Alfonso

This course picks up where 2o2o Foundation ended, and is also useful for anyone needing proofing on their contacts!

We will add more criteria to your behavior and merge your flatwork with your full obstacle. We will also discuss what to do when things go wrong in the ring and what is the best plan for YOUR dog. More than likely, your dog is perfect in practice but doesn't have the same performance at a trial. Proofing not only your dog's behavior but yours as a handler is a must. WE need as much training as our dogs do. If we are to expect them to be consistent, we need to start by looking at our own performance.
