Thank you to Maree Field for an amazing training workshop on Sunday 23rd April centered on Focus & Motivation. Participants worked through various exercises with ever increasing distractions over the course of the day, culminating in dogs & handlers working around open sardine cans, certainly a challenge for some. Auditors were also put to work as extreme distractors. Other topics covered during the day included transfer of value, teaching ring entries and performing a short sequence while other handlers & dogs provide distraction and vice versa.
Thank you also to Angela Burke for helping Maree supervise the practical exercises.
Lots of fun and learning was had by all in attendance.
