Duration: 2hrs
Cost: £17. A minimum of 6 handlers will be needed.
Instructor: Sarah Stokes

Do you struggle to remember courses?
Do you find you get in your dogs way on course or are you constantly sending them away from you or crossing behind?
Do you want to be able to find the best lines for you and your dog so you can stay out of their way and in front of them?

This course will give you some general course decision and handling rules to follow when you are walking courses. These will enable you to find the best lines for you and your dog and mean you can stay out of your dogs way. You will also learn some techniques that will help you to remember courses more easily. If you entered the Just Eat Show in the afternoon you will be able to use these rules and practice the techniques you have just learnt. Content will include some theory and practical exercises.
This course is aimed at Beginner Handlers and those who struggle with memorising courses.
