CO OPEN PRE TRIAL PREP / BEGINNER UTILITY

Description In this class students will learn to do all the open exercises in a complete format so they can navigate through a trial run through smoothly and know how to move from one exercise to the next and keep their dogs focused and on task. Those dogs that are not quite ready for a trial run in all the open exercises will continue to practice with instruction for as long as they need to do the total exercises.
Students will continue to learn the very beginning of the Utility exercises by breaking down parts of each exercise to make it simplified for students and their dogs. This format will be used throughout the duration of the utility level classes as we move forward.

Prerequisite: Dogs and handlers should be familiar with all the open level exercises. Dogs and handlers do not need to be familiar with the utility level exercises. No titles required.
What to Bring: Bring your happy eager to learn dogs, along with a short heel leash, collar tab, dumbbell, tug toy, clicker, utility scent articles, gloves, targets, assorted treats, jackpot jar.
