When Adele brought home her Flat-Coated Retriever puppy "Sonic" in October of 2011, she started producing short videos of training sessions. The ones she has finished are organized by classes and by areas of training. You can also see all of the videos Adele has posted on her YouTube channel.

Adele's Come & Stay Class

Come & Stay is Adele's third level competition obedience class. The class builds on the Fundamentals and Maneuvers exercises. The dog learns all the compenents of the AKC obedience recall (come) and rally front exercises, including front and finishes. We introduce the dogs to down stays, stand for exam, platforms, a second target game, and cookie-toss sits. All of the exercises are foundation exercises for obedience and rally. Many are also useful for field dogs.

The exercises are introduced in class in the week listed.

If there isn't a link, it means Adele hasn't released a video on that topic.
