Seminars are usually one group of participants
for eight hours with a 45 minute lunch break included. Or they
are two four hour seminars with a one hour lunch break in between
the two sessions.
For hourly rates (less than an 8 hr seminar day)
there is a minimum of 4 hrs if travel is more than
50 miles each way.
Type of seminar depends on what your needs are.
A large group (12 - 15) will contain
lectures and small sequences with 1 or 2 handling elements in each sequence,
whereas a smaller group will have more time on the equipment. A good
working size is 10 participants.
Seminars can also be broken into segments.
For example there could be 2 hr blocks of specific skills, such as weave
pole entries, jump boxes, targeting, how to begin a course, or how to walk a
course even. In this case, handlers
do not need to be competent on all equipment. Click here
to view some suggested seminar topics.
Preference is to work with intermediate or advanced groups. Handlers and dogs must be competent on all equipment, but not
necessarily at full height. Novice seminars will mostly concentrate on handling sequences utilizing jumps and tunnels, with
little work on the contacts or weaves.

total cost for the day or weekend is required. This

The deposit can be refunded, or put towards
the new date.
A questionnaire will be sent out once we set up a date, or you can

day goes by better if I have an idea of people's background, goals, etc. To get the most out of my time, these should be completed and
received at least one week prior to the seminar.

device while at my seminars/lessons.
