Pro Dog Series | Focused Heel: Dave Mckelson
Dog Spot: $119
General Viewing: $89
The Pro Dog Series workshops are designed to deep dive into single key topics that challenge many of us. For this workshop there will be 5 working dog spots, plus general viewing tickets (no dog). The dog spot tickets can be purchased online, so first in will secure a spot. This is very much a workshop format, not a class format. One dog will come out at a time for training/coaching in front of the entire group. Dogs will need to be crated or in your car (weather dependent) when not being trained.
This workshop is targeting both Pro Dog clients working towards their level 4 assessment and dog enthusiasts who love to train skill-based work. A focused heel is made up of many small pieces, each requiring careful attention and a level of handler coordination/precision. We need to develop a strong attitude in the behaviour, so ultimately we can build a sustained performance with a high level of handler engagement throughout. It’s a careful balance, with many challenges. We’ll be looking at technique to develop different stages of the focused heel and troubleshooting many of the difficulties.
This workshop has a theory and practical component, with a strong focus on practical application. The purpose of the dog spots is to demonstrate the common techniques that Dave would use to problem solve and develop behaviour. The workshop is equally valuable to those attending with or without a dog.
Dog Spots: If you do purchase a dog spot ticket, please send an email with some details about your dog and their training level. Our team will need to sight proof of a current C5 vaccination (or equivalent) prior to attending the seminar. Please also ensure your dogs are up to date with their worming/flea/tick treatments. You can attend to your dog at any time throughout the workshop.
Parking: Dog Spot attendees will have priority parking out front. If parking is full out front there is parking in the service lane that runs parallel to the Princess Hwy.
Catering: Tea/coffee and light snacks.
Refund policy: Pro Dog will only offer a refund or exchange of a ticket if an event is cancelled, rescheduled or significantly relocated by the Seller (and you cannot or do not wish to attend the rescheduled or relocated event), or to the extent otherwise required by law (including the Australian Consumer Law).
