We are so excited to be hosting Bev Blanchard for 2 days of Canine Freestyle!
Learn to dance with your dog and work on advanced communication and training.
Freestyle is good for all ages of dogs. This is a small, exclusive seminar so the dogs will do a lot of work. Stamina will be important! A lot of small treats will be needed through the day. The dog should have some basic skills but freestyle experience is not required. Bev will be teaching plenty of tricks and talking about the basics as well like heeling, attention, etc.
Dogs must be able to wait quietly in their crate (or car) between turns.
The group may be broken up into beginner and advanced depending on the levels of the participants.
We encourage new and seasoned dog trainers of any kind to audit — freestyle opens up a repertoire of behaviors beyond sit, down, stay, off, come, heel, etc. and benefits any trainer or behavior-counselor.
