The Art of Proofing: Preparing Your Dog For Obedience Trials

"Proofing is a test. When you proof an exercise with your dog, you are testing his understanding of that exercise under increasingly difficult levels of distractions. Through proofing, you want to increase your dog’s ability to ignore distractions and stay focused on you or the current exercise. When he does get distracted, you want him to get back on task promptly. If you do it properly, proofing builds confidence rather than eroding it." - pg. 3, The Art of Proofing"

In 2008, Adele Yunck self-published this handy little spiral-bound book. It is chock full of ideas for proofing your dog in preparation for obedience and rally trial competition. It gives ideas for proofing in a group setting like a training class, with one helper, and when you are by yourself. The book is liberally illustrated with photos, drawings, and diagrams, and has a thorough index, helping you to find what you need to work on quickly.

Price: $19.95 + $4.00 shipping & handling.

We ship the Art of Proofing via USPS First Class Mail.
