Running Contact Dog Walk DIY Self-Study

Prerequisite: Must have taken the Running Contacts Foundation Training with Stacy Bols. Those who continue to work through the Foundation exercises are welcome  to participate in this course and transition to this material when ready. Working spots will need access to an adjustable dog walk.

With instructor Stacy Bols, handlers will continue the lessons from Stacy's foundations for a running contact course as they move their training to the dog walk obstacle.

In this course, you'll seamlessly focus on transitioning that super solid foundation and clear understanding of criteria to the dog walk contact.

In this online training, Stacy provides:

  • A customized progression plan for each working team.
  • Personalized coaching & feedback on your videos and questions throughout course. 
  • Lessons specifically created for an easy transition of foundation skills to the dog walk obstacle.
  • Training designed for your dog's physical safety, without the needless repetition on contact equipment.
  • A clear understanding of your dog's criteria during motion on the dog walk.
  • Advancing critical handler skill-development exercises and techniques used to visually identify and consistently reward motion-based criteria on the dog walk.

This program's content is designed for 12-weeks of training and is appropriate for any dog who has successfully completed the Foundations training, understands driving to the remote food machine and/or to a stationary toy, and is physically and mentally mature enough to be running across a full dog walk.

In this course you will:

  • Have access to coaching the first 3 weeks.
  • Add motion across a dog walk.
  • Build drive across a dog walk.
  • Promote criteria-based thoughtfulness on the dog walk obstacle.
  • Continue to train directional cues.
  • Promote forward focus.
  • Ensure your dog has a clear understanding on a plank before introducing a dog walk.

What you'll need for this course:

  • Non-slip mat that is any contrasting color (except yellow) from the surface it's placed on. For example, a non-slip bathtub mat is simplest, but several options may be used for class.
  • A way to secure the mat (options are discussed in the course).
  • Vet wrap for hind legs (this is a great tool that is discussed in the course).
  • 2 wings from a jump or cones.
  • A manners minder/remote trainer.
  • Other items as recommended to your team by Stacy during the Foundations course.

  • An adjustable full-size dog walk (3 12' long boards).
