Onto Teaching

I have a couple of teaching assignments coming up, which will be a new role for me, at least in the dog training area. I teach kids (and teachers) about technology but have not formally taught dog training before. I am also planning to teach a rally class later this year. I am looking forward to it but also trying to think of what I can add that the teacher I am substituting for does not already do. The classes are novice and open obedience drop in classes. I was thinking of showing folks how to keep their heeling fun and interested by adding rally moves, both left and right turns, and making heeling a game. I was also thinking of teaching the Around the Clock method for scent discrimination. I will you how it goes in a few weeks.
