Going Up!: Elevating Your Freestyle Training with Platforms
One of the most important tools freestylers should have is training behaviors using raised platforms. Raised platforms, used effectively, can help your dog learn precise positions and master new freestyle behaviors more quickly. These platforms are practically indispensable when training your canine partner in distance work.
In this Session, freestyle champion Michele Pouliot will teach you about incorporating platforms into your training with beginning to advanced freestyle dogs. She will teach you how to select a proper platform, what behaviors to teach with it, how to teach them, and how to fade the use of platforms as you progress towards performance. With Michele, you're going up!
