If you are looking for a more motivating way to run your dog, an easier way to stay ahead, or simply some relief for your hips, knees and ankles, this class is for you!  Join Melanie for a four week class covering the blind cross foundation exercise that she uses to teach handlers and their dogs how to execute blind crosses on the tightest of turns.  The first two weeks will be spent perfecting and progressing the exercise and the second two weeks will offer a variety of short sequences to practice various blind cross scenarios.  Master them all, and then YOU get to decide where you'd like to use them on courses.

This class is suitable for all dogs eight months and older, both those just starting out, as well as experienced teams looking to improve their blind cross precision. The foundation exercise can (and is encouraged to!) be done with a very low bar, and teams will be individually challenged as appropriate.
