FIRST ANNUAL PRACTICAL K9 TRAINING

SEMINAR WEEKEND

Back to Basics:

Communicating with your K9

Join Rod and Elise for a weekend of diving deep into the basics of K9 Training.  

Here they will take you back to the beginning, emphasizing the importance of communication between you and your k9 and how to achieve faster, and more reliable results. Reviewing topics from how a dog learns, the different training methodologies and how to apply them to your practical k9 training. Let's deep dive into the emotions they feel from you as the handler and how it affects the results they offer, and then guide you on the path of mastery through the importance of consistency, structure, nutrition and routine within the k9s daily life. From there, Handlers and their K9s (Working Spots only), will actually get to apply the training in the field with mini 1:1 sessions with each trainer and dive right into specific trouble shooting for each team's needs.  

 

The Practical K9 Training Seminar begins on Friday evening as a Meet and Greet.  Here, everyone will get a chance to meet, and enjoy a delicious complimentary dinner.  We will then review the plan and schedule for the weekend and have everyone ready and geared up for the next day.  On Saturday morning, we dive right into training and break for a BBQ lunch hosted by a very special guest, and then continue on into the afternoon with training until the evening.  

Camping on site is welcome and encouraged. On Sunday we will begin first thing in the morning and train until mid-afternoon, followed by a surprise for all.  There will also be a bunch of amazing vendors on site, and prizes for all. 

 

Nonetheless, this weekend is going to be filled with a ton of fun, a chance to meet some incredible K9 teams, including police, military, sport and pet teams, powerful training lessons, amazing vendors, and a belly full of good foods!!  

 

You will not be disappointed, and remember your success is our highest priority!!

 

The training does not end here, it's only just begun!!

 

See you at the seminar!!!
