Advancing Hoopers Distance Training Around Barrel

Adding distance around a barrel can be a pretty advanced maneuver depending on your dog’s confidence level.

If you did your work with target training and circling objects, it should  really be a piece of cake for you and your dog.

But don’t start here, you want to build your distance and angles of execution slowly in order to keep your dog’s confidence up.

Notice how this dog is hunting for the Hoops and has a good idea of what is expected making execution easier for both dog and handler.

Remember to always go back in your training if your dog shows signs of disinterest or confusion and build more slowly.
