Maneuvers On-Line - Working Spot

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). 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 over a 12-week period via a Facebook group. 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.

  Notes: The end date above is when the 12-weeks of feedback will be over for working spot trainers. You will have full access to all of the course videos and the Facebook group through March 23, 2021 (6 months).

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). All the video lessons are hosted on the Thinkific platform. An auditing spot in the course gives you full access to all of the course's video lessons on the Thinkific platform 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. You may read all of the posts and watch all the videos posted by students with working spots and my critiques on the Facebook group, but may not post videos about your dog. You may ask technical questions about using the Thinkific site.

Competition Puppy Obedience

Competition Puppy Obedience

This will be an on-going class, starting January 2020, for puppies trained by experienced trainers. We will work on a variety of skills for competition-bound pups, starting with skills from the Fundamentals class and advancing from there.

Prerequisites

Trainer has earned at least some kind of obedience title on at least one previous dog.

Tue 6:30-7:25 PM Aug 4 Dec 31 $110 Adele Tues Comp Puppy Filled
  Notes: This class is intended for young puppies with very little training, trained by experienced trainers interested in competition obedience. We will work on my usual curriculum (starting with exercises from Fundamentals) along with adding in more advanced skills, such as retrieving, go-outs, and beginning jumping skills that are age appropriate. It will be an on-going series, i.e., we will continue to meet each week as long as there are enough students interested. You may take up to 8 class weeks to use your 6 weeks of class fees, being aware you will be responsible for keeping up with the lesson plans.
