Walking the Course
In the walking the course class, the handler will learn basic sequencing by walking small course sequences deciding what is the “right “ way to handle their dog, then run the sequences allowing the dog / handler to work on side changes, off-leash control and some distance work. Handling skills taught / improved in this class will include front crosses, rear crosses, lead outs, distance, serpentines, 270s and 180s. Dog skill problems will be worked on as time allows.
Prerequisites: The dog is at least 1 year of age or older and has completed Novice Sequencing or has instructor approval.
