OB570: Fantastic Fronts and Finishes

Instructor: Hannah Branigan

Course Details

Fronts and finishes are found in every level of obedience and rally, and the points really start adding up! 

This class is intended for both students teaching fronts and finishes from scratch, and also those looking to fine tune their performance. We will look at what skills are important for perfect fronts and finishes, and break down how to teach them. We will explore the use of multiple different tools and methods to teach these skills and discuss the pros and cons of each. We will also look at different options for reinforcement for the most effective and efficient training results. We will also cover diagnosing problems and identifying solutions.

Like the Skill Building courses, you will receive the majority of the material up front so that you can pick and choose where to start based on your current level of training. Troubleshooting tips and videos will be added depending on what challenges our Gold and Silver students encounter.
