You want precision and reliability? Wonder how you can keep the same level of performance while increasing the complexity of the behavior? Get that and more!
This seminar video is designed to build on the material covered in Obedience Fundamentals. The topics covered include concepts such as maintaining criteria as complexity increases, cues and stimulus control for the ring, different types of focus, and engagement in training and in the ring.
Identify and handle errors with a positive, structured response, designed to refocus and encourage the dog. Make the behavior you want more likely to happen! Deconstruct the Figure 8 heeling exercise, breaking down the dog skills needed and handler footwork for a perfect performance.
Use foundation skills to teach distraction proofing games. As always, the emphasis is placed on fun and enthusiasm, while training for precise, reliable behaviors.
