presents a full weekend workshop
Clicker Gundog - Water & Retrieving
Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th October 2019
£200 one dog and handler FULL
(paypal instalment plans available)
This workshop takes a step up from the workshop last year. The venue has a more challenging environment to enable handlers to increase their skills in woodland and water. This workshop will explore and improve retrieving skills including water work.
Who is it for?
All breeds welcome. To get the best from this workshop your dog should have a complete retrieve chain on cue, a recall on a whistle cue, a stop on whistle cue and have been introduced to Hunting. For the handler to get the best from attending you will need to have an understanding of basic learning theory and have used reinforcement based techniques.
