Improved Contact Performances for the New Year!

Speedoggie/Total Team Conditioning For Consistant Contact Performances 2019

Is your dog jumping off the contacts? 

Stopping at the top of the A Frame to ‘admire the view’? 

Inching/creeping down the contact planks? 

Using the table as a springboard? 

The skills taught in this class will help you teach your dog a more consistant and reliable contact end performance. The exercises covered in the class focus on building greater generalization skills to your performance so your dog will be able to apply what they learn in practice to the competition environment. This class also covers common mistakes made in contact end position training as well as individual team problem solving. This class is designed for all size and breeds of dogs. 

End position skills and functional fitness exercises that do not need to be taught on actual contact equipment can greatly improve your dog’s ability to perform contacts quickly, accurately and consistently. Practicing your dogs contact performance position away from competition equipment allows you to disconnect any stress and/or confusion your dog may have during the learning phases of your training, away from the competition equipment. Once the contact end position is perfected, the behavior can be easily be transferred to the contact equipment. 

In this class we not only work on building the physical strength and conditioning for achieving your preferred contact performance but we also offer training tips on how to use these exercises to aid in your dog’s generalization of these skills to the actual contact equipment. 

This class is open to all levels. No equipment is required and props can be made out of household items. All exercises can be performed in the size of an average living room (carpet or anti slip mat/yoga mat is recommended for traction).
