Online Classes At Fenzi Dog Sport Academy

My online classes are conducted through Fenzi Dog Sport Academy.  With online classes you get access to full step by step lectures on how to teach the topics, problem solving common issues, and plenty of video examples!  You can digest all the information while sitting at home in your pjs and refer back to the information as often as you need!  Classes run for 6 weeks but you keep access to the lectures for a year (or 1yr past your last FDSA class.)

 

For more information on how the classes are run, please visit the FAQ page at FDSA.

Ring Confidence for Obedience, Rally, and Agility

Create a solid ring preparation routine to prepare a young dog for trialing, or fix ring stress and focus issues with dogs who have already started competing.  The most important class I teach!  If you are struggling with getting your dog to perform in the ring the way they do in practice then this is the class I recommend!

Next Class Starts Dec 1, 2020

Ring Stress: Broken Dogs

This new class is for dogs who have already started trialing and are struggling.  This class will draw together important concepts from my ring confidence class and bye bye cookie class, and will expand on ways you can help support your dog in a trial environment. 

New class coming...

TEAM Foundation Classes

Building a solid foundation to prepare your dog for any sport!  With particular focus on the obedience and rally foundations to compete in the TEAM program or for AKC, CDSP, UKC, CKC, WCRL and other obedience and rally organizations. 

 

This program offers step by step instructions on how to teach every obedience exercise!  We break it down into the smallest pieces so that even if you are new to obedience you will feel confident in teaching the exercises!  In the first level we start with everything from pivoting in heel position to go outs and scent articles!

TEAM 1: Next  Class Starts Feb 1, 2020

Bye, Bye Cookies: Hello Remote Reinforcement!

A class looking at getting happy and confident performances when your rewards are located off your body and at a distance. We will also focus on how to train around distractions so your dog can focus even without a cookie in your hand!  If you’ve ever said your dog only does it when you’re holding the reward in your hand then let’s work together to fix it!

Next Class starts Spring 2020

Novice Smart: Preparing for the Dog's First Trial

Are you looking at competing in Novice or Beginner Novice obedience in the upcoming trial season?  This class looks at filling in the gaps for both you and your dog!  We will be focusing on specific ring preparation behaviors such as setting up for each exercise, transitioning between exercises, and leaving the rewards outside of the ring.  While lectures won't be devoted to how to start teaching each of the exercises, we will look at polishing up the behaviors and smooth them out!  For handlers new to competing, there will also be lectures on what to expect at obedience trials and how to warm up your dog to compete!

Next Class starts Feb 1, 2020!

Stand With Me

Teaching a solid stand cue, the moving stand, and how to introduce the concept of an exam to excitable or nervous dogs.  We will even break down how to teach a stand at a distance for the new AKC command discrimination exercise!

Next Class summer 2020
