Have Fun with Go Outs & Marking!

Sunday Oct 6

11:00 AM

Experience Level: All

Do you dream of doing fancy obedience work someday? Go outs are one of the most exciting exercises to train! The dog gets to run and jump, and there aren’t as many precision details to obsess over for the human.

These skills can be started with even very young dogs!

This session is for dogs at all levels. No idea what a go out is? Join us! Struggling with a certain aspect of your go out? Join us too!

The 3 main areas we will discuss in this session are:

1. Marking a line (useful for go outs, gloves, retriever work, and even agility!)

2. Sends to a target (Primarily discuss teaching a send to a stanchion, but any “target” works!)

3. Directed Sends (return to you by taking an obstacle- jump or cone- on the way back after a send!)
