JAG is offering the following seminars:

  • RESCHEDULED — Friday, March 9 – 6PM-9PM – Judges Corner with Sally Gichner—Come experience a Masters or Premier level UKI course with AKC judge Sally Gichner. This series will consist of a course previously designed and used by the visiting judge. Participants will discuss the course with the judge then take turns running the course. Continued discussion and handling options will be explored between the judge and participants. Limited spots will be offered so there will be lots of working time.

  • Sunday, February 11, 2018 – 9AM-12:30PM – Crosses: where, when, how & why? Kathleen Oswald—Deciding what cross to use on course can be difficult, but this half day seminar will give you the tools you need to handle effectively! Learn more than ever about front, rear and blind crosses. In this seminar, Kathleen will explain how to use and place each type of cross for your dog. Each cross will be broken down into easy to follow and apply guidelines, for you to use for years to come! Often with new dogs, we make mistakes in our timing, placement, and choice of cross – because we are so in sync with our older dogs! Focusing in on how to make the best choices for your new partner is really helpful, and we firm up cross based skills (verbals, distance, and reinforce side changes). This is appropriate for any age dog that is able to complete short sequences.

  • Sunday, February 11, 2018 – 1PM-4:30PM – Weave Pole Woes to Wows with Kathleen Oswald—This half-day seminar will focus on weaves, weaves and more weaves! It is specifically intended to help handlers complete their dog?s weave pole training or correct common problems like weave entry misses, slow weaving, or popping out early. The focus will move from entries to exits to proficiency on 12 poles as the course progresses. For weave skills, you must introduce, train, and then proof for total understanding! We will apply this method using drills, and each one expands your dog?s ability to find entries, ignore distractions, and weave anywhere! *Dogs should have the ability to at least work 12 poles.
