Upcoming Workshops

 3D Workshop, Dealing with Difficult Dogs featuring Martin Deeley

March 23-26, 2017 – 3D Workshop, Dealing with Difficult Dogs

This 4 day workshop will be taught by Heather Beck.  She will go over leash work, indoor socials, structured daycare, dog behavior, dog assessments, and so much more!

Martin Deeley will also be our guest and teaching, BUILDING THE BOND WITH RETRIEVING. In the session Martin will explain and show how retrieving helps build a relationship with a dog. Attendees with dogs  will be encouraged to do retrieves with their dogs in a structured and fun approach. We will work on ways of improving the retrieve and how problems can be minimized and overcome. The aim is to teach and demonstrate  the approaches to building a strong relationship and ‘want to’ in a dog by including retrieve training and exercises in the training program.  Training, Exercise, Relationship, Reward and Fun – Retrieving.  Make a training session pleasurable with retrieving and also develop the foundation for a working and competition dog.

Working spaces are very limited so sign up early if you want to work with your dog during this informative 4 days. Those attending with dogs should bring an object or objects their dog will retrieve or at least carry.

Saturday, March 25th will be our Dinner and Dog Bites event. If you are planning to attend, please be sure to let us know on your registration form.
