Are You 100% Prepared to Compete?

preparing to show proofing Jul 12, 2022

It is extremely disappointing to be in the ring and have something unusual occur that derails your performance.

I teach seminars all over the country, and I hear the word “proofing” a lot. Often, proofing is described as extreme distractions that are loud, disruptive and leave dogs nervous about performing. That's not what we want!

That said, proofing is important. In today’s video, I describe two types of proofing that you must do to ensure your dog is 100% prepared to compete.

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this blog series, I have discussed your ring warm-up, choreographing your performance, and now the necessary proofing to ensure your dog understands his job, and can perform in a distracting show environment.

If you’ve enjoyed this information, the best way for me to continue to help you is for you to join me on my membership site, The Obedience Road.

I believe the Obedience Road has all the information you need to succeed at competitive obedience. 


I only open registration twice a year because it is most effective to bring on new members as a group. 

I started coaching competitive students over 30 years ago, in classes, seminars, through writing and video. The Obedience Road is a culmination of all the information that I have available. I am committed to helping you reach your goals. 

In this series I have done my best to teach you about proofing, warming up, and choreographing your performance. I have so much more I want to teach you. It is my heart’s desire to support you! I hope you’ll join me on THE OBEDIENCE ROAD.
