LIFE SKILLS COURSE FOR ALL BREEDS/TYPES & AGES
** Friday morning (Int) - All Saints VH - and ** Monday morning (Starter) starting in February - Chardstock CH - starting regularly for 4 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 level and want to broaden their training to work with other dogs and to include some fun elements, such as whistle-training and distance and directional work.
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 and scent discrimination. 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. PS: It is possible to test for Bronze and Siver GC from this course.
