We had such a great time with Bev in March, that we're having her back in December!
Freestyle is good for all ages of dogs. Learn to dance with your dog and work on advanced communication and training.
Saturday Dec 7 - Workshop
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 and be able to work with you in the presence of other dogs.
Sunday Dec 8 - Private Lessons with Bev
Spend time with Bev working on EXACTLY what you want to work with your dog. Learn some new tricks, or work on your choreography.
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.
