    Obedience Games

    Join us for a full day of playing obedience games! Short, fun, and fast paced games will be presented for all levels of competition obedience training. Julie will share a wealth of training knowledge and games to engage and motivate your dog. Instead of formal training we will learn ways to mix up our sessions and be more unpredictable. By adding “game training” with less predictability and formality, we build relationship and transfer reinforcement to the act of playing!
