A special class summarizing 2 different running contact methods for teaching fast and reliable contacts (with cc. 15 years experience in RC).
The classes take place at FACEBOOK, so PLEASE REGISTER BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org or by FB:
This course will give you ideas to decide which method fits you and your dog the best because I believe all dogs are different. It is an easy step-by-step guide explaining both running contact methods in details from the beginning till the end (including different exits on dogwalk and A-frame training) and gives you all the knowledge to finish the process with personalized feedback on all your videos. Videos from the students are welcomed over the whole period of this class.
It is opened for puppies with at least 6 months of age and also for adult dogs that needs foundations or some addition proofing on your RC training!
If Your dog has motivation problems I strongly recommend to take some private lessons first!
Toys, soft treats, clicker, target (size cc. 30 x 50 cm), carpet and plank for running contacts (same size as one part of the dogwalk), enough room (cc. 20 m) and some free time to edit videos 😉
Your training videos are asked back as a non-listed video uploaded to YouTube or any other video sites. The videos should be cut into maximum of 5 minutes in length.

“And it was a day, we decided to learn the Running Contacts, and it was a day that we signed up in your online course.
They were days, after days of practice, of disappointments, I go home sad because I did not do well, but got your corrections and began the days of joy.
I had other sad days, but came corrections and solutions again and so were progress, until one day, Tayler, my puppy, began to understand everything, to give me satisfaction, taking the Contact Running as a game, something he enjoys doing.
Zsuzsa Veres, thanks for your quick responses to each of my doubts, to make your students feel that you really have us in mind that you want us to we progress.

“Well, it’s finally here! Our graduation video! We started as a trouble team. I was frustated with my privious atempt to teach him RC and he was a young dog who lost his confidence and got confused in that process. 5 months later, we have bulit knowlegde and growed confidence, trought foundation exercises, a little bit every lesson. We still have a lot to work on, it’s just the beggining, but it was so much fun!! We worked on dog walk and latter on aframe, foccus for the MM (oh God, we really worked on this one!), undertanding of the reward system, different entries and exits, handling moves, and now, we are going to focus on directionals. I really learned to celebrate every small success and to trust my work and my dog working ethics. Zsuzsa, I don’t know how many times I have already thanked you, but here I am again. Without your patience, answers and corrections, we couldn’t have done it. Thank you for all!”

Thank you for sharing your logical and transparent system and all of your prompt and patient responses to my endless questions <3
It was a huge work, but we enjoyed every second of it, and certainly there is still a lot to train. But I can’t wish for a better partner than Rhea “

“You can‘t believe how happy we are!
We thank you much for your super great course, you are the best RC coach ever 🙂 We had a lot of frustrations before doing Running Contacts with other methods. We almost thought we would never reach this state. So please, grab a glass of wine, whiskey, or a piece of chocolate, or some other thing you like and enjoy your success”
