Cavaletti

Part of the Learning About Dogs Flexigility Series.

Using a horse training device of low, evenly spaced obstacles, Kay Laurence and her trainers show how to teach your dog self-control at speed. You’ll strengthen and limber the dog’s legs and body—and have wonderful fun together at the same time. The DVD demonstrates every training step, plus the crucial timing of clicks and the key placement of treats as the task gets more challenging. Using cavaletti is a wonderful way to build physical strength and skill in the performance dog—or to keep any big dog exercised, even indoors in the winter. Highly recommended!
