What is Drill Team?
Drill Team is a choreographed group made up of multiple dog-human duos. The group will perform various behaviors or tricks to music, much like a synchronized swim team. The expectation is to perform at community events.
Would my dog be a good fit?
A good drill team dog will be able to move around an area of multiple dogs without barking, whining, pulling on leash, lunging to meet others, etc. He/she will be able to keep his/her cool, maintain attention, follow cues, and take treats.
During a performance, each dog should be comfortable and relatively calm within a 6-8-foot (or smaller) radius of other dogs. While we may do a lot of the beginning practices at a greater distance, this is the goal. If you think your dog needs a bigger radius, please make this known before tryouts.
Drill Team is designed for dogs who have already taken our good manners curriculum and/or impulse control class or equivalent. Members and their dogs will learn new tricks and behaviors, but this is not a substitute for class.
Members are requested but not required to attend community performances.
