are the instructors?
Go to my website’s camp page (top of this page when available)
for instructor bios and other information.
We have three great instructors this year; all will give you new insights
into you and your canine teammate and give you lots of new skills and ideas to
take home with you!
Can I just attend one day?
Unfortunately, no; because of the rotating instructor format and material to be
covered, you must attend both days for the full camp experience.
The cost is $375 for two days of camp.
A deposit of $100 (non-refundable) is required to guarantee a spot, and
should be sent in with your registration. The
balance of $250 is due by July 1st, 2010.
Can I audit?
Yes! Audit fees are $100 a day. All levels of
experience are welcome to audit.
What’s the schedule?
Working groups will be set up based on experience level and problem/focus areas.
Max number of 12 handlers/dogs per group.
Each group will stay together for the course of the weekend, rotating
from instructor to instructor for working sessions each day.
There will be breaks between working sessions, as well as a lunch break.
I work a second dog?
You may only work one dog at a time.
However, if you want to substitute a second dog working at a similar or
higher level to your first dog, please contact me so I can approve the
substitution. You may bring as many
additional dogs to camp as you wish to that you are not working in camp.
Are cancellations allowed? For cancellations more than one month prior to the start date of the camp, all but the $100 deposit will be refunded if the spot can be filled. For cancellations less than one month prior to the start of camp, no fees will be refunded. Bitches in season and aggressive dogs are not allowed on the grounds. If you plan to attend with an intact bitch, you should plan ahead and arrange to have an alternate dog of similar skill level available to work. No refunds for bitches in season.
