with Megan Foster
August 31, 2019
Tyler’s Field ~ Bellingham, WA
A “fun-match” with instruction. Each class will have a different lecture/discussion topic for teams to focus on during their walk through and runs, and will receive feedback from Megan.
9:00 – 11:00 am Course Analysis
This lecture & run through will focus on how to use the coursemap to plan your best handling strategy & create your “clear round rulebook”.
11:30 – 1:30 pm Virtual Dog vs Real Dog
This lecture & run through will focus on bridging the gap between what you planned during your walkthrough with your virtual dog and what actually happened with your real dog!
2:00 – 4:00 pm Reducing Reinforcement
This lecture & run through will focus on getting enthusiastic, confident coursework from your dog even when the food & toys are not immediately available.
4:30 – 6:30 pm Training in the Ring
This lecture & run through will focus on how to utilize the various training in the ring options and how to stay consistent & maintain clarity from training to competition.
Everyone is working spot! There is no auditing!
Because parking is limited, there is no auditing available. Working dogs should be able to complete a Novice Level Standard Course. All levels are welcome. Each lecture will present with a new course that will be nested for Novice/Open and Master/Premier.
What does it cost?
Each lecture is limited to 12 dogs. You may choose as many lectures as you’d like.
$50 = one lecture
$95 = two lectures
