Ready, Steady, STAY!

Taught by Lori Michaels. Teach your dog to remain in one place, so you can lead out like a pro in order to stay ahead of him on course. Get in all the fancy moves and blind crosses you have been training so hard but are never actually able to execute in competitions since you always end up chasing your dog around the ring and resorting to a ton of rear crosses because he won’t freaking stay at the start line!
