LIFE SKILLS COURSE FOR ALL BREEDS/TYPES & AGES
** Friday morning - 10-11am - All Saints VH - starting regularly for 6 sessions
This course is aimed at dogs and handlers that have either worked through KCGC Puppy Foundation, had 1-2-1s for Foundation Skills or have achieved a basic level and want to broaden their training to working with other dogs and to include some fun elements, such as whistle-training and distance and directional work. Clicker and platform training are used to achieve strong cues in core skills.
Perhaps you hanker after having a go at Rally or Gundog work, but would like to have better basic skills before venturing into the unknown? This course will give you more confidence and an improved partnership with your dog. The focus is on play, click/treat, platform work and uses force-free methods for directional training and the retrieve and also an introduction to scentwork. Variety is the spice of life (and a successful dog/handler partnership) and this course will help handlers to become trainers and grasp a clearer understanding of how their dog learns best. Limited to four dogs/handlers.
INTERMEDIATE LIFESKILLS - to follow on from Life Skills. The Life Skill classes address distance, duration training and impulse control - and focus held in different environments and with distractions of all the senses. limited to four places. Please enquire for course information.
