An introduction to signs and exercises. Signs are displayed that you and your dog perform as you move through the course. You are allowed to give praise and talk to your dog - unlike formal AKC Obedience showing! This is similiar to a Rally Car Course - fun! If interested in showing for a title there are many events held in SE Michigan. Prerequisite Obedience Level Two graduates and/or with instructor permission.
If you are not interested in a title, but would like to do the class for fun - you are welcome! There is no pressure to title. Note, mixed breeds may be registered to compete if s/he is spayed/neutered. Great for dogs that need a job - espcecially in the winter when cabin fever may set in!
FMI on Rally - click on the American Kennel Club (AKC) link at the end of the Trainer's Bark Newsletter page on this web site. Look up Rally Obedience for more information and titling requirements on same.
Great dog manners are necessary as the class will be working towards off leash. A good understanding and response to the exercises taught in our RDT Obedience Two by both trainer (you) and your dog is also necessary to get the most from this level of training.
Dynamics! For Agility, Rally & Serious Obedience Trainers
Dynamics! is a wonderful learning experience offered in two formats! It may be offered as a clinic. If a clinic, you may attend with your dog (working) or you may audit (watch - no dog). It breaks down various exercises in a format which enables people to become better trainers and teachers.
For the exhibitor, especially the person that is cross training in conformation, it helps to clarify what type of performance is desired. Do you get sits in the conformation ring and lack of attention or enthusiasm in the obedience ring? Are you interested in perfecting your dog's attention, increasing motivation and reducing boredom by having more fun with your obedience?
Are you in need of better footwork and body language and more confidence?? Do you want to learn doodling exercises, footwork drills, proofing and more for Agility handling and Obedience?
Developing better timing, reading your dog and and how to play while you are training will be covered along with the mechanics.
If offered as a class, it is limited to our Obedience Level Three participants or Obedience Two grads with instructor permission. If in cllinic form, working or auditing spots are available. Please see the top of the Schedule Page for offerings.
