Course Description

Learn Your Dog 2: Handling Solutions For You and Your Dog :: Tracy Sklenar

For those who have participated in Learn Your Dog either online or at a live seminar (or similar seminars with AU instructors), this course is designed to take your handling to the next level by applying it to real life situations as well as looking at trial videos!

You will learn to handle with confidence and run with intent to bring out the best in your partnership with your dog!
We will work on specific drills to continue to sharpen your handling and teamwork with your dog – this will include getting better connection, timing, crosses, turns, making the best choices for you and your dog, and strengthening any weak areas in your handling tool box. These drills will focus on common challenges found in AKC and USDAA courses, along with some of the international-style challenges that are now beginning to appear on North American courses.

Also, each working participant will be able to submit Jumpers and Standard runs from trials, to get feedback, suggestions, and ideas for improvement!
