I would like to take Hopscotch to the next level, but finding a class around here that is more advanced is nearly impossible. So, any info you can pass on will be appreciated. I am going to have my husband build me the contact pieces, so we will be able to practice at home.

Target training teaches them to stop and start at the right places on the equipment making it much safer in my opion for green dogs who may sometimes be shakey on things or the opposite want to fly off the contacts.

here is the link to my FREE online class it is all geared towards the newbie and is set up in lessons you can do at home and at your own pace. Just pick and choose what you want to do. You just have to set up an account to log in to get started. Please excuse any typos. I stink on a PC and type with 2 fingers LOL

You are 3 hours from me, but only 2 hours from a good friend of mine with BTs with an indoor/outdoor training facility. I will pm you my e-mail, and if you would like to meet for a day of playing, I am sure Kathy would be up to it. You may even know her already.
