Course Description

MaxPup 1: Maximum Foundations for Performance Puppies (2013) :: Tracy Sklenar

This is the first in a comprehensive series of puppy classes designed to build the Maximum Foundation for your Performance Puppy!

This is the first course in the MaxPup series. 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 that incorporate body awareness, shaping, self-control, focus, drive, life skills, baby dog handling foundations, obstacle foundations and more! 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 assignments and forum discussions.

This course is only offered once a year, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn how to give your pup an incredible start!
