Advanced Ring Confidence

Sunday, Oct. 8

11:00AM - 12:40PM

Experience Level: See Description

This session is for teams who have taken the Ring Confidence class at any level. Let’s keep working on trial prep to help your dog feel confident and happy in a trial environment! You know the pieces your dog still needs to work on, such as people pressure, transitioning with focus between exercises, or happy setups!

There will not be a lecture. Each team will get to run through their current sticking points and get feedback on how to support their dog. The goal is to help the dog feel confident in meeting these challenges! The sport focus should be obedience/rally as there will not be agility equipment available.
