Mini Clinic: Confident & Happy Holds - Working

I teach "Hold" as the foundation for all retrieves.  Once dogs have a solid understanding of Hold, teaching retrieves is simple.  Dogs that mouth, chew, roll, spit out or won't release the dumbbell do not have a clear understanding of Hold.  When dogs are confused, conflicted or perceive pressure around Hold, these behaviors get worse.  In this clinic you will learn to teach Hold in a way that is clear for your dog.  We will break Hold into small steps so your dog can be successful which creates confidence.  Your dog will have a solid understanding of exactly what Hold means and they will love to "Hold"! 

Lots of raw footage of different breeds learning Hold along with trainer errors!
