About the Trainer
Catja has been a professional trainer in Denmark for 8 years having studied with Morten Egtvedt & Cecilie Koste. In 2017 she was invited to speak at Clicker Expo in Denmark. She has two competition dogs at the moment; one competes at elite level in a multi-disciplinary sport for working dogs that includes tracking, search & rescue and obedience. Her second dog is younger and being trained to compete later. Catja also works with the Danish Customs department training their scent dogs.
The weekend will be a fun activity for dogs at all levels.
Handlers and dogs can work at different levels depending on any previous experience. Beginners can start with obtaining a reliable indication whilst the more experienced dogs can develop their skills in a variety of settings.
Areas covered will include:
Indications in different settings
Wind & scents
Finding and marking
A majority of the weekend activities will take place outside, so wet weather clothing and boots will be needed in case of inclement weather.
Please ensure you bring ample, suitable shading for your vehicle as shaded parking cannot be guaranteed.
A packed lunch will be required. Refreshments are included with homemade cakes.
Spectators - there is a charge for spectators and a booking must be made in advance.
