This class is suitable for puppies just starting the skills needed for competition and have all their shots, Young Dogs, or Older Dogs that are experiencing a lack of enthusiasm and/or precision when training or trialing.

In this 6-week class you will review, refine and build upon the skills learned each week. Structure needed for Competition Obedience and Rally will be practiced. This class does not work on the exercises in those levels but the foundation needed to perform the exercises.
