What level are the exercises? 

This course will have beginner to intermediate exercises, but even those who have been doing fitness for a while may benefit.
Suggested Pre-requisite a basic understanding of clicker training and the following behaviors either on verbal or hand signal cue, using a target or lured are helpful, but not required:
➤ Nose Touch and/or Nose Touch Hold
➤ Chin Rest
➤ Cone Wrap
➤ Paw Target
➤ Go to Mat/Target
Possible Equipment – substitution will be recommended if you don’t have equipment used in the videos.
These skills will be taught on the flat (ground) without fitness equipment or balance props. Although I may occasionally use common household items to help obtain the desired positions, they are not necessary, but may be helpful during the training process. If you don't have the equipment set up shown in my videos, look for substitutions and ask in the comment section for suggestions.

▸ 2o2o Board/Travel Plank or Aerobic Bench
▸ Target
▸ Target Stick
▸ Mats
▸ Feed Pan or Bowl
▸ Stool
▸ X-Pen


There are many possible equipment options or you may use something you have laying around your house.

Training Methods - A variety of training methods can be used to obtain the proper movement or position - shaping, luring, capturing, targeting and It's Yer Choice. These will be discussed in the video tutorials, in the forum and through video review but every tiny step will not be demonstrated in the instructional video.

Disclaimer: Some information in this class may overlap or appear in other classes due to the foundation needed for many behaviors, tricks and fitness exercises. In addition, there are overlapping skills needed for many different performance activities so you may see exercises that are the same but packaged up differently toward a slightly different goal.
