PostSubject: Training V obedience   Thu 01 Mar 2012, 7:03 pm

Is there a difference in a training class and an obedience class?

I am thinking of looking elsewhere for some training as we have been going there a while now and I fancy something different. A dog club locally does obedience outdoors and I am thinking of going along to watch a class and see what I think of the trainer but not if it will be pretty much the same as what I do now

Yes its a bit more advanced than your normal training classes.

Most people that go to obedience classes work their dogs at obedience shows at various levels.

The heelwork has to be better, and you may do different things including retrieves (with a dumbell) , sendaways, distance work (sit, stand, down) and scent work too.

We so obedience with indie, its a bit more exciting than your standard training classes.

You should give it a go x

It's very much one and the same thing only the level of obedience required is higher.

We do send away, distance sit, down and stand, retrieve, stay whilst owner is out of the room etc and of course, ten minutes of agility before we start. I actually got Elsdon to do the weave this week without him wandering off to sniff other bums, people's treat etc. Woo hoo spinner smile

Elsdon responds to a whistle too Linda, it's handy for when he won't listen and I need his attention straight away.

We alredy do distance control, sendaways and scent work - she is really pushing him on scent work and last night put his treats inside two cushions on the floor under a coat. It did take him a while but he loves his scent work

I don't think to be honest that an obedience class would be anymore advanced than you already are.

Do you still train with vicki?

I've just ordered a new flyball box from darryl.
