Week 4 Homework

Last week we worked on stays and recalls with all the dogs loose which was super successful and fun. Continue to work on that as it is a great exercise to build duration.

We will not have class next week because the ranch is hosting a herding seminar so this homework will take you over to the fifth week of class on May 10th.

  1. Backing to 2 feet on and 2 feet off a box.
  2. Going forward to 2 feet on and 2 feet off a box.
  3. Figure 8 two obstacles. Don’t spread the obstacles apart till the dog is incredibly enthusiastic and sending to the obstacle (trees, chairs, cones).
  4. Loose leash walking. Use the same method we used to build the stay. Keep your dog engaged and happy while walking in “heel” position.
  5. Sit, go through a gate, sit and look at you till going off in a relaxed manner with a loose leash.

That’s all for now, Nancy
