April 27th & 28th, 2019

Is your dog giving you a lackluster performance in the obedience ring? A conditioned dog will demonstrate an increase in energy, drive, focus and stamina!  Many problems in obedience can be improved with sport specific strengthening, body awareness and coordination exercises.

Discover the secrets that led Petra Ford and her Labrador Retriever, Tyler, to two back to back National Obedience Championships and the only American team to ever win the Crufts World Cup.

You will learn sports specific exercises to:

  • Strengthen your dog's sit which influences fronts, finishes, halts, stays

  • Improve your dog's hind end awareness influencing left turns, inside of figure 8, fronts and finishes

  • Stabilize and strengthen your dog's stand (stand for exam, signals) and down (drop on recall, signal down)

  • Improve your dog's jumping style and confidence
