Skills Evaluation for Family Dog 3
How to Prepare for Your Dog's Evaluation for Family Dog 3
An evaluation is a way to test your skills and your dog's skills that you have already learned. Dogs with Family Dog 3 skills are better companion dogs. We encourage you to schedule an evaluation and move up to Family Dog 3 as soon as you feel confident in your dog's Family Dog 1 & 2 skills.
Here's our recipe for success:
1) Go to as many of the FD1 & FD2 topic classes as you can. Review the Basic Behaviors videos.
2) Practice the lessons at home and on walks with mild distractions.
3) Read/use the evaluation sheets to prepare for your evaluation.
4) Schedule a skills evaluation by talking to your instructor or contacting us.
5) Take the evaluation.
