SKILLS FOR SUCCESS Saturday – Heeling, Maintaining Focus and Attention, Body Awareness: Heelwork is not only the most difficult concept to teach a dog; it also requires the most maintenance and is the most physically and mentally demanding exercise required of the obedience dog. Heelwork exercises will be done as a group, with the focus on precision and mental/physical conditioning. Maintaining focus and attention will equip handlers with skills to keep the dogs engaged inside and outside the ring. Body awareness helps maintain the dog’s understanding and thought process. This will involve exercises such as Drop on Recall, Change of Position, Stands out of Motion and Front and Finish skills. Sunday – Heeling, Maintaining Enthusiasm & Accuracy, Problem Solving & Mental Toughness More precision heelwork drills will be covered throughout the day. Maintaining enthusiasm, precision and accuracy while training exercises like retrieves, signals, directed jumping and broad jump will be addressed. Based on participants’ needs, problem solving in all of the exercises will be discussed. As important as it is to motivate our dogs, we must also motivate ourselves. As such, maintaining mental toughness and stamina for both dog and handler will be covered.
