Course Description

Max Pup 5: Handling Games - One Jump and Beyond :: Tracy Sklenar

This class is part of a comprehensive series of classes designed to build the Maximum Foundation for your Performance Puppy! Handling Games is open for any puppy 8 months and older – or adult dogs in need of better understanding of handling.

This is the fifth course in the MaxPup series. We will use a series of motivational games to teach the important handling skills needed to build understanding of the handler’s body language and handling cues. Each handling cue will have 3 progressive levels for maximum understanding: flatwork, one jump games, and multi-jump games. You will be able to watch demo videos of the instructor’s dogs , as well as get feedback on your work with your own dog through video and forum discussions.
