Do you practice by yourself? Ever run out of ideas or find yourself doing boring drills with your dog? Connection Course Cards to the rescue! Grab a few cards, set up a course, and challenge yourself and your dog while having fun.
By challenge, we mean work on the quality of connection. How long can it be maintained? What interrupts the connection? Why is the leash tight? When are extra signals necessary? What pulls your dog out of connection? If you just want to march along practicing a drill of behaviors without focusing on quality, these cards are not for you. If you are a trainer who understands that connection is the foundation for everything, if you’re interested in setting the bar higher, and asking your students (or yourself) “What’s the best you can do?” these cards are a great tool.
Increase the difficulty by adding more cards, or increasing the distance between them. Handlers learn that even going a short distance in high quality connection is hard – but it’s what makes for great performance. If you have connection, you have the dog. Then you simply need to practice and polish those skills under greater complexity and for longer periods.
Smart instructors will love what Connection Course Cards can do for their groups and classes. Train without boring drills! Your students will love the fresh, creative approach to building skills. Run entire Connection Course classes with endless variations – ideal for a drop-in class.
