Test Stopped Contact Training

Sunday Oct 6

This seminar will take your contact training to a new level.

Does your dog understand the stopped contact behavior you trained? Revisit the following for your dog’s stopped contact skill:
Teaching and reinforcement
Cues, including releases

We will present them with exciting challenges to test your dog’s understanding in various situations.

Note this seminar won’t teach stopped contacts from the ground up. It is meant for dogs that already have stopped contact training.
