Cathie Hudson - Beginner Lesson 1 WHAT IS A LEADER In this video Cathie explains everything you are going to learn over the next eight lessons including what is a pack leader.
Cathie Hudson-Beginner Lesson 1 HOMEWORK Homework is everything you have learned in each lesson and you should only practice with your dog ten minutes a day.
Cathie Hudson - Beginner Lesson 2 "SIT STAY and RETURN AROUND YOUR DOG" Remember when you are doing this step that you must leave facing your dog and then return facing your dog. Also that you need to slide your left hand gently up the leash and keep the leash loose on the left side of your dog as you walk around behind the dog. When you do this you give your dog confidence in the tree and let them know that you will be returning.
Cathie Hudson - Beginner Lesson 3 "DOWN"
Cathie Hudson - Beginners lesson 4 "EXTENSION OF THE SIT STAY" At the beginning of the class the students are shown how to go to the end of their leash and drop it and learn how to extend the distance away from their dogs with the end goal to leave their dogs alone while all owners are across the room over twenty feet away.
Cathie Hudson - Beginner lesson 5 "LEAVE IT"
Cathie Hudson - Beginner lesson 5 EXTENSION OF THE SIT STAY TO ACROSS THE ROOM Each week we increase the distance and time for both the "Sit stay" and "Down stay"
Cathie Hudson - Beginner lesson 6 "HEELING WITH A LOOSE LEASH"
Cathie Hudson - Lesson 6 ... continued "LOOSE LEASH HEELING WITH CLASS" Students are encouraged to stop relying on their leashes and walk with them around their necks and try not to use the leash at all while heeling.
Cathie Hudson - Beginner Lesson 7 "COME" Students are learning how to teach their dog to come when called. Remember you can not teach your dog to "come" if they don't know how to "stay" first.
