Ready, Steady, Retrieve!

This course will work through the foundation skills for a Retrieve-to-hand along with other complementary skills such as heel work, stays, verbal and hand signal cues, steadiness, focus, and personal play.

This effective, force-free method of training a retrieve to hand is great for dogs of all sizes, breeds, and most ages! This is a great course for owners wishing to train their own hunting companion, service dog handlers, obedience competitors, or those who want to play a good old game of fetch.

By the end of this class, your dog should be able to retrieve an item and deliver it to your hand from a moderate distance; walk a small course in heel; hold a position while you walk away; and focus on you in distracting environments

Each week will build on the exercises from the previous class, so commitment to doing the homework is essential for success in this course.


This class is 1  hour a week for 7 weeks.

Prerequisite: Beginning with Basics - recommended age is 8 months and older
