The letter F
This week in our advanced foundation class, we worked our letters. Letter F was on the agenda last night.
I highly recommend using Nancy Gyes Alphabet Drills to practice handling exercises. I love the ideas presented and the clear explanations of handling. For Wed evening, I set up the letter F and added a tire and table. Students started with just the leadout of 1-3 and rewarded for that. We then added 4 and 5 and rewarded for the FC in front of 5. Lastly we put it all together.
Everyone did such a great job. These baby dogs are certainly coming along. So much fun to see both the dogs and the handlers gaining confidence.
