The following new exercises are covered by the class:
• Heel work (off-lead)
• Stays (off-lead/with distractions)
• Novice recall (off-lead)
• ‘A’ recall (straight line)
• Basic Retrieve
• Distance Control (next to dog)

Stage 1 Test – taken in Class 1 to move into Class 2

• As much encouragement and as many commands as necessary may be given
• Exercise must be completed with a distraction (another handler and dog standing by the test ring)
• No more than 7 points can be lost to pass

What your dog will be tested on:

• Heelwork (on lead): Lead must remain slack and a tight lead will be penalized
• Heelwork (off lead): Dog’s attention must remain on the handler and must remain with handler throughout the exercise
• Novice Recall (off lead): Includes a formal present and finish
• Sit Stay (off lead) – 1 minute
• Down Stay (off lead) – 2 minutes
