A class for dogs that have either not been introduced to the seesaw or weave poles yet. Also for dogs that have been introduced but still have not mastered, have fears, or are still using wires or/and open channels.

This class will start from the ground up, building positive behaviors and associations for both obstacles. All level dogs in class will start from step 1, so good for rehab dogs as well as newbies.

Seesaw methods will be the 2 tables method , and if needed, the old fashion low to high method. Weave pole method will be channel poles with wires, and possibly x pens for independent weave pole performance.
