Target Use in Dog Agility Training for Hoopers

Tanja Bauer does a great job of demonstrating how she uses a target in her training for the wonderful game of Hoopers.

Love how she warms up by getting her dog to go to the target without a verbal, but rather her body language, getting her dog to focus on her.

You will then see how she uses the target for fast reliable hoop performance and look at how solid a start-line-stay she is forming.

Remember that she and her dog are advanced and thus she is able to stand at some distance for these exercises.

What a super way to grow your distance work with confidence in your dog without losing their drive and focus!
