Plus: There will be a separate (concurrent) registration for clients, and dedicated owners for a 3 hour semi-private session, Fri, Jun 8, 2018, 1pm – 4 pm, (10-4:30 for attending certified trainers). (see below for details). The purpose of this event is to work directly with clients and dogs with problems.

NOTE: Newly certified trainers will find this event provides a useful template to use with clients, as well as a chance to see the approach given to multiple cases, working together. This is an outstanding option for your clients that need this work and can continue with you. You can attend with the client, or the client dog, and work on issues, or observe and help others. The dog gets a strong start with us working together, and you can leave with a lesson plan for the client dog (or your own).

*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 can, and 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 contact Gail Kulur,,  about crates, and crate covers and water bowls.

How to choose the dog to bring: It can be very good to bring a relatively normal dog that needs these skills, so you can focus on the process and build your own skills and confidence. Contact Kayce if you want to bring a difficult dog. If you do not want to bring a dog, you will still have the opportunity to work with dogs.
