Diane welcomes everyone attending to bring their dog.

Fee includes snacks, beverages, and lunch both days.

On Saturday evening, after dinner, we will meet again for an informal gathering to ask questions, etc. Details will be provided a few weeks prior to the seminar.

All levels of obedience will be covered. Topics will include:

How to view training from the dog’s perspective

How to train for understanding, not patterning

Building a strong training relationship through communication

Understanding “help” vs “correction”

Special small dog techniques

Seminar format is lecture, demonstration, and some audience participation. There will be opportunities to work with dogs on problem-solving and mastering new skills. Dogs will be worked, but not every dog will do every exercise.

Her record includes 16 perfect 200 scores earned on 4 different breeds and 4 OTCHs (Golden Retriever, Keeshond, Pekingese, and Pomeranian).
