The Master the Course at Your Own Pace: DIY Self-Study - A flexible, budget-friendly choice for independent learners, with the option to upgrade to the VIP Experience anytime. BONUS 3 weeks of Coaching & Video Review.
With instructor Stacy Bols, training foundations for a running contact is fast, fun and addictive for both the dog and handler!
When it comes to running contacts, the foundation can make or break the final product. In this course, you'll focus on developing that super solid foundation, and have a clear understanding of criteria so that your team's future progression to full contacts will be seamless and easy.
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 at-home, small space areas.
- Training designed for your dog's physical safety, with on-the-flat exercises and without contact equipment.
- A clear understanding of your dog's criteria during motion.
- Critical handler skill-development exercises and techniques to visually identify and consistently reward motion-based criteria.
This program's content is designed for 12-weeks of training and is appropriate for any dog 4-months old and up. Upon successful completion of the Running Contact Foundation, the next course would be either the RC Dog Walk or RC A-Frame course.
It is helpful, but not necessary, if your dog already understands driving to the remote food machine and/or to a stationary toy.
In this course you will:
- Add motion.
- Build drive.
- Promote criteria-based thoughtfulness.
- Introduce directional cues.
- Promote forward focus.
- Ensure your dog has a clear understanding before introducing a plank.
BONUS: In the last lesson you will introduce your dog to a plank! This lesson is optional.
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.
Items needed for the BONUS lesson:
- For small dogs, a 6' long x 12" wide plank (a longer plank, a dog walk/ teeter plank with softened edge can also be used).
- For large dogs, a 10-12' long x 12" wide plank (a longer plank, a dog walk/ teeter plank with softened edge can also be used).
