Worked Up!: January 11-12 - 9am-5pm
This workshop is all about dogs that are over-stressed, over-aroused, over-adrenalized, and just plain over the top. Help your dog give his true performance in the ring by helping him be in a healthy state of arousal at trials. Part lecture, part hands-on, this workshop addresses everything that comes with problems of arousal: handler-biting, excessive barking, broken start lines and contacts, lack of focus, knocked bars, and more.
Hidden Potential: January 13-14 - 9am-5pm Sunday and 8am-4pm Monday
This workshop is all about dogs that have been labeled as shut-down, down-stressers, shy, or low-drive. Dogs that run fast in training but slow in trials, dogs that have good days and bad ones, dogs that give up on training, and dogs that seem to prefer the couch to the clicker. This course will help you to build confidence, address the stress, and tailor your training to bring out the potential of your reluctant dog.
