[AU-063] MaxPup (And Friends) Winter Camp: Get Connected!

Building off the popular Get Connected! webinar, join us for a class of small space games to develop great connection! There will be a MaxPup Track for the pups 6 months and older (using only wings/barrels/cones) and a Competition Track (using jumps) for dogs old enough to jump!

WHERE you look on and HOW you look at your dog on course can make a world of difference on lines and turns. Learn how to master the 5 CONNECTION techniques to streamline how you communicate with your dog, and bring out your dog’s best on course!

Does your dog struggle to find the right lines on course? Do you want to become a better handler for your young dog? Interested in getting more commitment, more independence on lines, and tighter turns? Need help with timing or keeping bars up?

All you need is enough space for 2 jumps (or 4 wings) and 1 wing, barrel, or cone to learn how to effectively use CONNECTION to streamline how you communicate with your dog.

In this class, you will learn how to use connection to improve every element of handling: commitment, backsides, countermotion, getting rid of refusals, build more confidence & speed, get tight turns, improve jumping, create amazing responses to cues, solve problems, build distance skills, and more!

This class fits perfectly into any handling system and is tailored to the needs of each individual dog and handler team.

Working participants can post videos of their training for personalized feedback! Auditors are welcome to train along with the working participants and ask questions for individual feedback!
