Fenzi Classes
#11
My sister just finished a set of dog classes hosted by the vet and was looking for more to do and so I told her about Fenzi. I mentioned Fenzi mainly because I've heard a lot of good things about them here from you guys. We both started looking into the classes they have to offer and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Hoping to find something fun, new and exciting that can maybe even push some limits slightly. So nothing that will be like a basic dog obedience class that can be found at a local dog club... Any suggestions? Blush

In June, Ember and I are taking:

Fundamentals at Gold
Nosework 120 at Bronze (unless something happens and I suddenly have the money for a gold there too lol, doubtful).

Fundamentals IS fundamentals in training, but it has concepts I never learned that lead into every avenue, like fronts, heeling, positions, send aways, retrieves - all things we never had a chance to learn. So for me that's pushing boundaries! And these are not concepts taught in a basic Petco class, though they may be taught in a very basic kind of way, if that makes sense?

I also highly suggest Nosework. Make a thinking dog think harder!

And I REALLY want to see that Intro To Freestyle, but it looks way too advanced for us personally.

Engagement is another AMAZING course. I have it in my library and plan to work through it after all of the moving is said and done.

Thanks! The engagement looks good. I was thinking of the cookie jar one or the rally-free one but now looking at engagement I'm going to have to think of that one too. I really don't know... At least I have a few weeks to decide. Big Grin

Who's officially taking the course - you, your sister, or both? And at what level? If you are thinking Kep, you would do good with the Managing Reactive Dogs one. I really need to take that one now that Ember is braving up but I can't afford 3 classes, so we are planning to take it in October when it comes around again.

Officially it will be my sister. We were thinking of taking two courses both at bronze and splitting the cost. She has already decided to pick the hound around town and is letting me pick the other one.

There is a course coming back in August.
Mimicry
I have seen some videos come from the last class. It looks an absolute blast.

Mimicry looks fun. If all goes well (which I'm sure it will Smile) it will definitely be one of the ones I want to do.

I think we are going to try that also! I noticed Ember was mimicing me during nosework. Everything she thought I touched, she'd go around touching. It might be right up Ember's ally LOL!
