Heeling Skills 1:

Fridays, 6:00-7:00pm, for 8 weeks, starting June 7th, with Sheri Morris & Hilary McKeown

Prerequisite for this course: successful completion of Dog Sports Foundations. Dogs coming into this class should have a solid understanding of shaping and luring mechanics, hand touches, and be highly food motivated. The goal of this course is to work on building both joyful and precise heeling behaviors for use in sports such as Rally, Obedience, and Freestyle. Teams will learn a variety of games to build drive and enthusiasm while also balancing those games with precision-based skills, to create dogs who both love to heel and do so with great accuracy. This course is suitable both for dogs who have no previous heeling experience as well as dogs who already have a trained heeling behavior and need to work on balancing the joy and precision in their performance. This is a homework-heavy course and consistent training at home between classes will be necessary to be successful.

Crating is required for this class
