Train in the ring. Take the whole course time to train your dog on your choice of sequence or equipment and rewarding with a non-food and non-audible toy inside the ring.
For dogs who are only motivated by food, shows can offer food reward areas adjacent the ring where handlers can run and reward their dogs during training runs.
