Building an Independent Stopped Dogwalk

In this workshop, Tammy will help you and your dog find a path to an independent stopped end-behavior. We will discuss forward drive over the obstacle, lateral distance handling, side changes, send-aways, and strong verbal release cues.

If you have to manage your dog’s performance on the contact, you are not free to handle the course in the manner you wish. An independent dogwalk behavior gives you control of your movements on course and allows the dog to feel confident and in control of his choices, which in turn creates faster, more fluid performances.

International Handling and Coursework

In this workshop, we will run FCI style full courses. We may break courses down and analyze the best path for each individual team. All equipment may be used.

Novice Handling

In this workshop, we will work through 8 to 12 obstacle sequences focusing on forward sends, obstacle commitment, and side changes. We will maximize the handler’s steps while focusing on setting clear lines for the dogs. Jumps and tunnels only.

Obstacle Commitment

Are you looking to get ahead on course? Having strong obstacle commitment will allow you to get in those blinds and front crosses that allow for better communication on course. In this workshop, we focus on small exercises to teach the dog an understanding of true commitment. We will help the dog understand that the handler’s motion is not always indicative of what is actually being cued. Jumps and tunnels only.

Building Confidence for Motivation and Speed

Want to improve your dog’s joy on course? Does your dog struggle with a lack of motivation? Come join us for a workshop to help build speed, confidence, joy & motivation! This class is created for those who have dogs that may be lacking the motivation to play, train, or run with their handlers. 

Master Skill Drills

In this workshop, we will work through 12 to 14 obstacle sequences focusing on quick, rapid handling. We will maximize the handler’s steps while setting clear lines for the dog. Jumps, tunnels, and weaves.
