To be successful in any dog sport it is crucial to build and a balance of drive and impulse control. During this 4 week session, students will work on skills at both ends of this spectrum. A variety of activities and skills will be introduced which raise the dog’s level of activity and state of arousal along with skills and activities that produce a calmer more thoughtful state. As drive is built, students and dogs will be challenged to maintain control and focus even when their dogs are in a heightened state of arousal.
