Prerequisite – Novice Classes and Introduction to taking and holding a dumbbell

Class will continue working off lead heeling skills, with attention. The focus of this class will take you through all the steps of teaching the open exercises to your dog.  Because this is a Beginning Open class, you will learn how to break all exercises down into little steps. Open exercises will include drop on recall, retrieving a dumbbell both on the flat and over high jump, the broad jump and signal discrimination exercises.  This class is designed to help you achieve your obedience goals beyond Novice titles.

Our instructor teaching this new Beginning Open class will be Kathy Sutliff. Kathy has been training dogs for about 25 years.  She has put 3 OTCH (obedience trial championship) on her Goldens, a CDX on her Ridgeback and is presently working her Newfoundland towards a CDX.  Kathy believes in teaching the dog, not the breed. She loves the connection you get with your dog when you show and compete in obedience and she would like to share that with her students
