Calling all up-and-coming agility stars! Are you wondering what foundation behaviors to prioritize and when? In this 2.5hr workshop you will learn how to train core foundation skills that will improve your young dog's ability to learn more advanced obstacle and sequencing skills in the future. "Pre-foundation" behaviors (start-line stays, reinforcer skills, focus and engagement) will be covered as needed. Puppies as young as 4 months old and older dogs that need to brush up on their commitment or independence are welcome!

NOTE: A minimum of 3 working participants is required for this workshop to run. If the minimum enrollment is not reached by two business days before the workshop date all currently enrolled participants will be notified and refunded their registration fee.
