Introduction to Nosework$0.00
Please let us know if you’re planning on bringing a dog, so that we can make sure we have sufficient supplies.
Nosework is one of fastest growing new dog sports around, and it’s easy to see why! It’s fun both the dogs and the handlers. Nosework is a great way to develop a relationship of mutual trust with your dog and can help build a dog’s confidence and focus, making it a wonderful sport for dogs of all ages.
Join us at this MCOA nosework seminar, where we will discuss the various organizations that offer nosework trials and how they differ from each other, the basic concepts of nosework training, the handler/dog partnership. Bring your dog, as we will be introducing them to Birch and teaching them to “find it”!
10 Things Every Mastiff Puppy Should Know$0.00
Instructors: Mary Speer and Becky Campbell
Please attend this seminar if you have or ever plan to have another Mastiff Puppy. We will cover the 10 things every Mastiff puppy should know by the time it is six months old. We will use food, encouragement, capturing behaviors and luring into behaviors to teach you and your puppy these very important 10 things. We will discuss how to teach your puppy each behavior and then how to maintain it for the life of the dog. This seminar is for you and your puppy (or old dog) to attend together. We will mix up the material to have short lecture times with plenty of practice time. Please bring your dog on a six foot leash, small soft treats and a toy your puppy loves. This is our favorite seminar to teach, so please join us with your dog and we promise you both will have fun.
