This is an all on-line competition obedience course. In the course, you will learn how to begin teaching a wide variety of crucial skills for competition-bound puppies. These include different techniques for training with food; attention, position changes (sit, down, stand), cookie-toss recalls, beginning sit stay, perch and platform work, beginning target work, and general handling for grooming and veterinary care. All the video lessons are hosted on the Thinkific platform. A working spot in the course gives you a chance to get feedback from Adele during the weekly Zoom class meeting. In addition to the 6 weeks of feedback via Zoom, you will have full access to all of the course video lessons for a full 6 months from when you start the lessons, as well as access to the course Facebook group for that same 6 months.

Prerequisites

No prior training is required. This class is geared toward young puppies with little to no training and trainers who are interested in training for obedience and Rally titles.

Maneuvers On-Line - Working Spot

This is Adele's first all on-line competition obedience course. In the course, you will learn how to teach your dog power steering commands for improved body awareness (forward, backward, side-step right and left, perch work, and tight turns to the right and left).

You must have the ability to take and post videos to the class Facebook group in order to get feedback. In addition to the 12-week period of feedback, you will have full access to all of the course's video lessons for a full 6 months from when you start the lessons, as well as access to the course Facebook group for that same 6 months.

Prerequisites

Your dog should have basic attention on you, and you should be able to get your dog to sit from a stand and stand from a sit.
