Join our new Freestyle Heelwork class - a fun way to learn about the new, fast-paced sport of dog freestyle and heelwork to music. Freestyle heelwork can help high-energy dogs learn to focus on walks, while teaching fun and tricky new skills. This class is an excellent option for anyone looking for new ways to connect and play with their dog. Freestyle heelwork is the take-anywhere solution for building teamwork and having fun doing it!
In this four-week class we will cover the fundamentals of heelwork - teaching our dogs to move in unision with us while performing a sequence of behaviors and tricks. We will focus on how to teach a dog to want to walk beside us, plus use platforms to teach humans and dogs a fun and easy way to hold precise positions. Here's a video showing a taste of what you can do with Freestyle!
