Intro to Distance with Judy Whitbred & Ken Briefel

Oriole Dog Training Club

Friday, July 2, 2021

Do you have the ability to sit your dog at the start line, lead out laterally 15′ to 20′ and send them to the obstacle in front of them?

Do you know where to apply pressure to the line when you want them to stay away from you to take an obstacle?

Do you want to be able to layer a jump and ask your dog to take the obstacle instead of turn into you?

Do you want to be able to lead out to the end of a tunnel under an A-frame and get a discrimination between an A-frame and the tunnel from a great distance?

Simple exercises can develop skills that can prove invaluable on a course! Dogs should be willing to drive to a target, if necessary to get you started. And dogs need to be proficient on all obstacles except weaves, which will not be included in sequences in this seminar, but will be demonstrated. Ken Briefel will be assisting.
