Named Obstacle Discrimination

Named Obstacle Discrimination

Instructor: Bud Houston
Course Type: Self-Study Course

This item is not eligible for storewide discounts


The Bud Houston self-study training course is dedicated to solving the traditional tunnel-under-the-contact riddle—commonly called a discrimination challenge. Rather than approaching the challenge as a test of handling, we will train the dog to discriminate between tunnel and contact by a verbal cue: the name of the obstacle. The 9 lessons will take you about 6-8 weeks to complete.

Unlike most self-study courses, you may send videos to Bud privately for review and ask questions.
