Fun and Fabulous Fronts and Finishes - Working

Whether your are looking to improve your fronts and finishes; retrain them and/or are just starting to teach them, this is the course for you!  I break fronts and finishes down into small steps in the form of "tricks".  This keeps fronts and finishes fun AND results in dog that truly understands their job!

I combine clear communication with body awareness exercises so that your dog truly understands how to consistently and stylishly perform fronts and finishes. 

This course covers:

  • Hind end awareness 
  • Breaking front and finishes down
  • Teaching and treating fronts and finishes as tricks
  • Fronts up close, lateral and angled fronts
  • Fronts with speed
  • Fronts with retrieve object (dumbbell, glove, article)
  • Left Finish and Around Finish
  • Fronts and Finishes that are correct on the FIRST try


You can see that Zeal thinks "fronts" are a fun game:

Zayna is much younger and still learning front, but she also views them as "tricks":
