Jumping Skills and Problem Solving

The goal of this class is to expand your dog’s jumping education and prepare your dog for any jumping challenge he may see on course. Situations that commonly result in knocked bars or other jumping problems will be covered. This class will begin by reviewing jumping skills with drills involving one jump, followed by drills that gradually increase in difficulty. These drills are intended for dogs competing at masters level or above, although this is not required.  Click for more details.
