This workshop will be directly following our Freestyle for Fun workshop and is perfect for anyone with previous freestyle experience. Teams will learn how to add new moves and tricks to their repertoire, work with props, improve their attention and heelwork, and use the ring space effectively. Appropriate transitions and clever choreography will also be emphasized.

This workshop builds on the teamwork, focus and moves taught in previous classes and workshops. Any previous freestyle experience is accepted. Did you know you can create a very beautiful routine using only three freestyle moves?
Students will be shown how to design and polish brief off-leash routines and set them to music that showcases the unique strengths of their individual dogs.
Overt prompts for learned behaviors will be faded, moves will be combined with transitions to create interesting combination moves, and strategies for reward will be discussed. We will also learn how to select music, cue behaviors to the music, and teach dogs signature poses. Basic requirements for entry-level competition via different freestyle venues will be discussed.
