The Foundation class builds a strong working relationship between you and your dog. We encourage students to use the ’clicker’ or ‘Mark and Reward’ system to build drive and enthusiasm as well as build a solid reward system for later training. We introduce the concepts that you will need before getting on the big equipment such as learning to run with your dog, shadow handling, understanding body language, dogs body awareness/foot placement.
