This class is aimed at dogs and handlers who have not attended many classes before, other than the puppy class.
The class will consist of all types of dogs, of various ages, with no upper age limit.
You will be encouraged to play and talk to your dog making it much more enjoyable for both you and the dog, but, at the same time achieving your aim in getting your dog to perform the exercises. A lot of time and patience on both the handler’s and trainer’s part is required, but well worth it, but most important is to enjoy it too.
Every handler and dog learn at different speeds, there is no time limit as to how long you spend in the class.
