Performance Puppy--for puppies, age 3 to 9 months. Prerequisite: Junior or Senior Puppy
This class is designed to build a relationship with the handler through food, toys and other motivators. This is not a puppy socialization class as the puppy should develop eyes for you only. We will be using clicker fundamentals to introduce sit, down, come, stay, heeling and crate games. Targeting, playing tug and handling basics will also be introduced. We will work on rear-end awareness and agile maneuvers using a ball, wobble board and ladder.
