Do you want to learn how to teach your dog to drive forward ahead of you? Do you have a dog that curls back at you, spins or barks when you get behind your dog? Do you have a hard driving your dog to the last obstacle? If you answered yes, then this class is for you.
Teaching your dog to drive forward opens up your handling options and makes for a more flowing smooth run. Additionally, many FAST/Chances/Gamblers/Jackpot classes require the dog to send ahead while being behind a line. In this class, we will go over the steps to teach your dog to continue to drive forward even when you get behind. We will be doing my favorite driving forward exercises to teach our dogs to go go go!! With each lesson, I will go over when to cue and what cues to direct your dog through the sequence. We will go over how to reward your dog. Step by step instructions, videos and assignments are given. Multiple videos with different dogs will be shown including my young pup Inspire. During this class, you will see videos of Inspire learning to drive forward from the ground up. This class will start with the groundwork exercises to teach forward distance without equipment and move on to working with equipment.
