Reliability and Stability at Taigum
For graduates of Teamwork Dog’s Basic Training (foundation) course, we offer these fun, game based classes. As its name suggests, this class focusses on building reliability and stability in foundation skills like walking nicely on lead, coming when called, staying and responding quickly to cues like “sit” and “drop”.
These classes extend on the skills you learnt in Basic Training by adding the distraction of other dogs and people, new training scenarios and novel objects.
This class also introduces new challenges including, scenting games, body awareness games, and tricks as well as a new group of dogs to expand your dogs social awareness with.
This class is suitable for all graduates from the basic training course, even those dogs who need a little extra space to be successful. Like in the Basic Training course, dogs will station on their mats when they are not doing an exercise and handlers are welcome to bring a chair.
The Reliability and Stability class is offered at Taigum on Saturday 7:30am – 8:30am.
Please note: The training grounds open at 7:15am on Saturdays. Please DO NOT come onto the grounds before this time.
