TR102: Foundation Tracking 2

Posted in Course Descriptions

Instructor: Lucy Newton

Course Details

This course will continue to develop both drive and accuracy on foundation tracks. Our priority for this class will be to further develop the skills that the dog acquired in TR101. We will work towards increasing the spacing between the articles and also removing the food from the articles if needed.  As the dog continues to develop confidence we will also start to develop the skills needed to be ready to start learning turns and, depending on the progression of the dogs, introduce very small changes of cover. The age and length of the track will be gradually increased at a rate that allows the dog to develop confidence, and to continue to teach himself the path to reinforcement.
