Our E- Collar seminar is for dog/handler teams that have the basics down and are ready to advance to the use of the e-collar. The e-collar is a tool, that when used properly, can help a dog and handler reach higher levels of obedience but has the potential, used improperly, to cause problems. We will walk you through the proper application and use of the e-collar and we will have pre-selected models available for purchase at the event.
Prerequisites: completed either a basic obedience course with Audax K9, a Puppy Course with Audax K9 or at least 6 private sessions.
Upcoming E-Collar Seminar:
April 6, 2019 at 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The cost of this seminar is $150 for each dog/handler team.
The course is limited to 10 dog/handler teams. The first portion of the seminar will be lecture style. The second portion will be practical application. Dogs capable of quietly holding a down may stay with owners during the lecture. All other dogs will be crated. Please contact us with any questions.
Our Tracking seminar is designed to introduce the handler to the concepts involved in teaching the dog the IPO style of competition tracking. The course is limited to 10 dog/handler teams but may have additional handlers auditing without their dogs. This limit is applied so that each dog/handler team has sufficient time for the practical portion of the seminar. We focus on creating the proper imprint in the dog's mind that starts out the tracking career with a big win. We will cover the concepts of laying tracks for our dogs and using the way the track is laid to modify the dog’s behavior rather than using handler input. We will begin to condition the item indication and discuss equipment used in tracking.
