Update, which supercedes all previous announcements:

Who: Kayce Cover will lead a Certification Camp in “Perception Modification – Conditioned Relaxation & Cycles”

Why: Because the reasons dogs lose their homes and their lives is usually due to failure to manage emotions and cope with stressors appropriately. In this camp, we will lead people to master the Perception Modification process, solving all kinds of difficult problems with dogs.

What: We will meet Fri 7:30-9 to Meet & Greet, and see some video and demos.  Then early home to start Sat, Oct 4.  Four full days (10 – 4:30) of study and application of Perception Modification principles and protocols, leading to earning certification at Level I*. (see details below).

Participants can bring any dog that they can certify they can handle safely in public** (see details below). As space permits, participants can bring multiple dogs.

We will work as many dogs as possible as we master the critical skills, acquire the basic knowledge.

When: Sat Oct 4 through Tue Oct 7, 10 am to 4:30 pm. There will be a meet and greet on Friday evening, 7:30 – 9 pm. Private sessions can be scheduled during the day on Fri Oct 3  (contact Kayce Cover directly).

*The goal is for each participant to earn certification, which requires demonstration of mastery of the skills, and passage of a written test with 95% or better score. Students collaborate to accomplish this as a team. The result is all trainers emerge being excellent at these skills, rather than passing at a mediocre level. This is doable! Come ahead. If you are not generally comfortable in a class or test environment, come anyway. This will be a new experience.

** Dogs: All can bring a dog(s) as approved. You must certify, signed and in writing, that you will manage the dog safely in public, and will bring and engage whatever equipment required to do that. If any dog is disruptive, he will be excused from the camp until he is no longer disruptive.

All dogs must be on lead at all times when out of crates or cars, and in crates or cars the remainder of the time. No dogs are to be brought into contact except in accordance with the class activities. Please bring private water bowls, crate covers.
