· WORKING PLACES FULL (only AUDITING possible). NEW CLASS starts 10.09.2019 (REGISTRATION opens 10.08.2019).
I didn’t plan to open an on-line class specifically for RC until recently (also because you already have many great RC classes “on the market” to choose from). But in the last year, I got so many requests to train (or re-train) RC, that I changed my mind, in order to make it easier for everybody (and also to free again the places in private lessons).
You will see in the trailer what this RC class is about. I also gathered videos from some of my student’s trainings, to show you what I believe in when teaching RC. Many times people ask me which method I use, but it is a bit hard to answer, since I have never attended any RC class and I am not really familiar with other trainer’s methods (except from what I see in their public videos of course).
This RC class is the combination of SHAPING, TARGETING and specially ADAPTING RC training to every INDIVIDUAL dog, which I find really important (criteria, advices and EXERCISES in the class, when training Jack Russel or BC are not the same with me).
First and really important thing we do in the class, is generalise the behaviour as much as possible on the “ground” with TARGET TRAINING (away from the actual obstacles). Correct target training really helps you improve dog’s understanding before even starting with DW training and at the same time, the number of repetitions needed on the DW, is much lower because of that (and also healthier for dog’s body/joints). Running contacts depend so much on understanding and to proof them, you do not need to train DW after DW after DW…
Another important thing that compliments this RC class training is, using both, “FOOD MACHINE” and TOY, from beginning – to GENERALISE the behaviour to maximum already in early stages and to get the best from every dog, regardless if he is more toy or food oriented.
And probably the most important part of any RC training is ADAPTING the class/method to every individual dog, based on his CHARACTER, SIZE, PHYSICAL ABILITIES,… Individual differences between dogs play a huge role when choosing the optimum training for every dog. Because of that, you have many different types of exercises in this class, which will help you get the best from every dog.
Last but not least, I also put a lot of attention to safety (you get that when you train RC with malinois) and that is another reason why I do so many RC foundations away from full DW.
I have experiences of training RC for the past 15 years – all my dogs successfully had running contacts from beginning (Cavalier King Charles, Papillons, Pumis and Malinois).
INFORMATION ABOUT THE CLASS:

- price: WORKING place: 260 €, AUDITOR: 160 €
“SNEAK PEAK” INTO THE EXERCISES FROM THE CLASS:
So many foundations for RC can be done away from the DW or jumps 😀 Since I get many questions about the "method" I use in my RC class, here is one small part of "ground" training from one of my students. Besides using both, MM and toy, from beginning (to generalise the behaviour and to get the best from every dog, regardless if he is more toy or food oriented), and adapting the class to every individual dog (based on his character, size, physical abilities,..), there is also one thing I really try to do and that is generalise the behaviour as much as possible away from the actual obstacles, so that whole training process is as "nice" to dog's body (joints) as possible. Running contacts depend so much on understanding and to proof it, you do not need to train DW after DW after DW... :DDue to many requests, entries for the new on-line class will open a bit sooner then I planned (end of May) and new class starts in June 😀Objavil/a Katarina Podlipnik C dne Torek, 24. april 2018

Well by far the most difficult but extremely rewarding thing to teach Vesper, but after many months of work she had her 2nd session sequencing soft DW turns. ❤️ Still a long way to go but happy there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks Katarina for your continued support and guidance. 🥰Objavil/a Helen Anderson Postle dne Torek, 09. april 2019
