Course Description

MaxPup 3: Handling Foundations and Contacts Foundations :: Sklenar

This is the third course in the MaxPup series. We will use a series of motivational games to teach foundation skills needed for handling and contact training (both running and stopped contacts) as well as continue to build teamwork, drive and focus.  You will be able to watch videos of the instructor’s pups, as well as get feedback on your work with your own pup through video and forum discussions.
