Instructor: Nancy Gagliardi Little
Are you losing handling points in the obedience ring? Are you getting ready to trial your dog in obedience and you would like help cleaning up handling or pointing out areas that need some training? Want an OTCh? Want to just get through Novice with your first dog? Whether you are an experienced obedience competitor or someone that has never shown in the ring, this class will help you learn what you will need to do to improve your performance. This course is devoted to those of you that want to improve your ring performance.
Nancy judged AKC obedience trials for 20 years, including 4 regional and national obedience tournaments. She put an OTCh on her Novice A Labrador Retriever and also placed in national tournaments. She completed AKC OTChs on 4 dogs and placed in many national tournaments with these dogs. Nancy can help you pinpoint areas that will help improve your performance. This course will be based on the needs of the Gold students. There aren't any formal lectures planned - the details for this class will be included in the Gold students homework forum. These forums will be archived at the end of the class instead of lectures.
