Intro to Distance

I use cones to help build confidence and speed while I am working on their distance skills. Confidence is a huge part of distance work and in my opinion the most important!  When I want to start teaching my dogs any distance skills, the main thing I am looking for is to build their confidence, and using cones and flatwork helps boost that confidence before we start incorporating distance with obstacles.

My six week Intro to Distance class is available on the Fluid Motion Patreon group, more information can be found at this link: www.patreon.com/fluidmotion

Below is an intro video to how I use cones to start teaching distance skills!
