Workshop Goals - The “FUN” damentals:

  • Learn fun games and new tools. Learn how to use these tools for training the foundation pieces of the obedience exercises and how to keep your dog sharp throughout their entire show career.


  • Learn how to build the “right” training relationship with your dog. Attitude is everything! Learn how to build the “want to” in your dog before adding the “have to”.


  • Learn how to be an effective reward-based, balanced trainer.


  • Learn how to create the finished dog by building on success, not on failure.


  • Learn how to use praise, foods, toys, and corrections correctly to get the most out of your dog.

  • Learn how to solve training problems to keep you and your dog on the road to success!
