This course goes through the exact progressions to teach your dog how to collect properly and commit to a jump on a verbal cue without physical management by the handler.
You will learn what collection really is, how to develop and maintain criteria, how to get it on a reliable verbal cue at distance, how to train it so that you can also get the behaviour in a trial setting, and the current issues and safety concerns with the way turns are currently being taught.
The first half of the course only requires three jumps and a tunnel. The second half of the course requires up to 7 jumps and a tunnel.
This course has 10 lessons, with the first half only requiring three jumps and a tunnel. (You can often substitute a jump or two for the tunnel if you are really stuck.) The second half can be done with seven jumps and a tunnel. The course uses video, chalk talks, downloadable PDFs and quizzes to test your understanding. The course is self paced, but a coach will respond to questions posted in the comments sections below the lessons on a regular basis. You have life-time access to the course, and material will continue to be added over time.
Initially, the lessons will be put up one per week over the 10 weeks.
