 Online Running Contacts

Instructors - Jordan Biggs & Hana Spitz

Each lesson in this class progressively builds the skills needed to teach your dog a successful running dogwalk and A-frame. Jordan and Hana use a mat work method, focusing on teaching obstacle commitment after the dogwalk while creating and maintaining the mat criteria. The class starts with creating value for the mat and understanding of the task. That understanding is then moved to a plank and gradually built into a complete dogwalk performance as well as A-frame performance. Training and adding verbals for dogwalk exits (go straight, collect, turn away) is also covered as well as some obstacle sequencing.
