Ringer's Pet Dog Training - Don't Blame 'Em - Train 'Em!
Fred Helfers will be here for 2 days,
March 30th and 31st


Handler Error and Skill Building sessions:
  “Identifying the 10 most Common Handler Error Faults”

“This lecture specifically focuses on Handler Error and incorporates both video and power point presentations. Experience has shown that by establishing and applying a consistent maintenance training program, the areas of handler error
(e. g. leash handling, detailing skills, reading changes of behavior, search patterns, cueing, considering environment) are easily understood and correctable. The experienced canine handler will quickly recognize that there are many situations that can lead to handler error.”

Saturday afternoon will be Handler drills and Skill building with dog teams.  Fred will work hands on with teams to improve training, team work and competition.

Foundation to Finesse

The workshop covers handler skills, reading your dog, and training drills that define patterned searches and handler / dog communication with minimal intrusion on the dog working to an odor source.  (Teams of all skill levels.)

Six teams will work their dogs in the morning session and then audit the afternoon session.  A different six will work their dogs in the afternoon, they will audit the morning.  Video review of dog teams.
