Let's Play Tricks!
3 Day Trick Workshop and Seminar!
7th, 8th & 9th March 2020
9:00am - 4:00pm
Do you want to know how dogs think and learn?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a dog? A dog being taught a trick by a human?
Do you love training your dog, but need some extra motivation?
Are you training something that you’re just stuck on?
Do you need a bit of training inspiration?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this seminar / workshop will be perfect for you!
Julija Kinghorn & Amanda Murcutt of K9 Connect
Starting from the start, you will discover how dogs learn, which training techniques are best suited to you and your dog, how to problem solve and work on more complex tricks. We will play some ‘human training’ games, you will have a chance to watch other dogs being trained and have all your questions answered about the ins and outs of training your dog tricks.
If you attend both Days 1 & 2, you will be eligible to attend our *Rare Opportunity* Day 3. This is an exciting chance to get an insight into what’s involved in wrangling animals for TV and film. Your dog will be ‘interviewed’ for TV suitability, a fun audition to see if your dog has what it takes.
Limited Working Spots are available so get your registration form in early so you don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity.
Each handler can only bring one dog on each day. You can bring a different dog on each day.
Each dog attending must be crate trained.
Your dog(s) must be sociable with both people and other dogs.
Each dog needs a minimum of a C5 vaccination or Titre. Proof must be presented
Your dog is expected to know how to sit, drop/down, and stay (remain in position).
We would appreciate you managing noisy dogs appropriately.
Even if you don’t have a dog coming along, you will definitely get a lot out of attending our seminar / workshop. Being part of open discussions, taking part in fun training exercises without dogs and observing others training their dogs, there is always something new to learn.
Come along for Days 1 & 2 and join us for our *Rare Opportunity* Day 3. We will be more than happy to answer questions about training your dog that can’t make it to a Working Spot.
Our prices are as follows:
Working Spots (one participant with their dog)
1 Day - $155
2 Days - $285
