Competition Novice Obedience

Nola and her dog Taff competing for their new Obedience title

This class is for handler and dog teams that are looking to further their foundation skills and learn the needed exercises to compete at the novice obedience level in AKC.

The class will teach the complicated, but fun skills needed to have beautiful heeling by breaking the pattern down into the static components and the moving components. The class will teach teams how to create fast straight recalls, fronts and finishes. The class will work on the stationary exercises – stand for exam and sit / down stays.

The emphasis in teaching all the above skills will be trained by using positive reinforcement to capture the wanted dog behaviors through shaping or luring. Handler and dog teams will learn how to use toy and food rewards to mark the wanted behaviors, work on impulse control, and have fun with their dog. This is a 6 week class, but the above concepts do take many months to learn.

This is a competition class. As such, it is expected that the dogs can work calmly in the proximity of other dogs and handlers and wait quietly in crates when necessary. It is not appropriate for reactive, fearful or overly vocal  or distracted dogs.

Prerequisites: Handler and dog teams must have good mat or crate behaviors, i.e.. your dog can quietly wait for it's turn in the building or if your dog is vocal – crating in the car between turns may be more appropriate.

EDOC's tracking class is only offered in the fall and winter. There are 2 – 6 week sessions that prepares dogs and handlers for certification for the AKC Tracking Dog Test.

Session 1

We will start the dogs on asphalt and build a scenting foundation based on hard surface tracking, short grass tracking and transitions from hard surface to grass. Corners will be in grass. Article indication will be a fun game.  The foundation should help the dog understand scent whether the team’s goal is to work toward a TD (Tracking Dog) or a TDU (Tracking Dog Urban) title or just see what your dog can do with his nose in a “search and rescue” type game. This is a basic course. No experience is necessary. Only a leash and collar are needed for your dog for the first lesson, although a harness is fine if you have it.  Bring a positive attitude and a willingness to be out in all kinds of weather! 

6 lessons.  
Class Limit - 4
Masks Required

The fee is $150.


Session 2

We will move to a grass field and work on TD skills.  We’ll start with basics to get the dogs going in a new location. Each team will progress at their own pace and receive individual attention.  We will work on aging the track and building distance. We will work toward multiple corners from a strong start with a readable article indication at the end of the track.  Handlers will be coached in line handling and the basic tracking tenants of when to: 
a) stand still; 
b) move forward;
c) back up. 

Prerequisite:  Session 1 or previous experience.
