Beginner Gun Dog Workshop (2 Days - outdoors)
Time & Date: June 15th & 16th 10am-4pm.
What to expect: After competing this workshop, you should have the basic understandings/training necessary to continue working on your own as well as participate in our group practice and drills courses.
We will begin with classroom instruction followed by hands on application with your dog, a break, followed by classroom instruction once again and more hands on application. We will have a break for lunch as well.
In this course you will learn how to get your dog started on a path toward field/hunt training. You will learn the basic concepts/methods and tools used to train your dog through compassionate, UK style, non e-collar methods and you will have the opportunity to apply what you have learned in hands on training with your dog.
What is required of you: You will learn the basic skills necessary during the workshop, but you will need to continue practicing & training with your puppy/dog after the workshop is over. Please be prepared to dedicate time to practicing with your puppy/dog to reinforce what you learn in this workshop.
Prerequisites: Your puppy/dog must be at least 6 months old at the time of the first class. Open to all breeds.
What to bring: Bring a kennel, water and dish, whistle, appropriate leash & collar for your dog and dog treats, bumpers with scent or pheasant feathers. Your own lunch!
Important Registration Information: Your purchase/registration for this workshop is good for 1 handler + 1 dog ("team") to attend. If you are bringing an additional dog(s) (thus running more than once and taking the same time as an extra handler/dog team), you must purchase/register each dog(s) separately. If you are bringing a friend or family member to simply watch, you must register them as an "audit spot" in order for them to attend the workshop, found here.
*NOTE: Your dog must be up-to-date on all vaccinations/health precautions. Please also note we will work rain or shine so dress accordingly. Class will only be canceled in cases of extreme weather conditions (ie. tornado, lightening, etc.) or some other unforeseen emergency/illness in which case we will re-schedule the class to make up for it.
