Performance Foundation Class – Tuesday, May 1, 1-2pm in the Event Center (open to Norfolk/Norwich) (Eight working spots, Unlimited auditing)
This is an opportunity to learn to train your Norfolk or Norwich of any age some of the basics you will need to be successful in performance events such as agility, obedience and rally. We will cover “Sit,” “Down,” “Stand,” “Go on,” “Get it,” “Bring it,” and “Leave it,” as well as the Forward Send and the agility Recall to Heel. Eight terriers will be coached in the ring, and auditing is unlimited at ring-side. All participants will receive a one-page hand-out of resources and reminders. Bring your dog on a 6-foot lead with plenty of small treats for shaping, along with your clicker, if you would like to use one. You are welcome to video segments for future reference.
