Students will have the opportunity to learn how to read course maps and to run basic WCRL and AKC courses. Courses will test proficiency and speed in execution of a variety of turns and basic exercises, demonstrating sit, stand, down, stay, front, and right and left finishes, while heeling on-leash.
