Drive Into the Distance Zone: Power Steering
Power steering is what helps you turn your car with ease. The driver has better control over the vehicle and driving becomes easier.
IMAGINE HAVING POWER STEERING WITH YOUR DOG
Being able to steer our dog through the agility course is essential. Adding distance and power steering is very useful and fun!! In this class, we will go HOW and WHEN to cue your dog to turn properly for here/come (turn towards you) and switch/flip (turn away from you). We will go over body language, verbal cues and motion to cue your dog to turn. We will practice sequences to teach steering cues and then add more distance to each sequence. This class starts out with foundation exercises to teach turning cues. Then we will do fun sequences to work on steering at a distance! This class will show videos of how I taught Inspire (around 11 months in most of the videos) to turn and how I taught him to turn at a distance. In many of these videos, it is the first time that I’ve done these exercises with him so you will see how I teach him to turn and how I troubleshoot and help him to be successful.
Step by step instructions, videos and assignments are given. Multiple videos with different dogs will be shown including my young pup Inspire.
