Liz Randall & Rachel (Pearson) Downs -
March & April 2016
Liz Randall & Rachel (Pearson) Downs will be teaching two "mini seminars" on Sunday, March 6 and Sunday, April 3rd in Fallbrook.
They will be teaching stopped contacts work for half of the day (AM session), and weaves for the other half (PM session). Dogs can be at any level--from pre-Novice dog to competing in Masters. Rachel & Liz will break down the behaviors to each dog's level and work on problem solving for each specific team. For baby dogs, they can work on fundamentals, and for more experienced teams they can work on addressing gaps in understanding, or proofing behaviors to the next level. Teams can work in one or both morning/afternoon sessions. Sessions will be open to 6 handler/dog teams, and will run around 3.5 hours.
The seminars are $70 per session, or $125 for the full day (both sessions, same day). Auditing is also available for $25 per session. The AM session will run from 8:30am to noon, and the PM session from 1-4:30pm.
The sessions will be held at a private home in Fallbrook. The field is grass, fully fenced, and with ample parking and shade.
Dogs should be a minimum of one year old and have had some experience with equipment and shaping behaviors.

About Rachel & Liz
Rachel (Pearson) Downs moved to San Diego from Texas just last year, so some of you may have yet to meet her. She has been teaching for years, and has been running in agility since she was six years old. She has run everything from mixed breeds, to Catahoulas, to Belgians to BCs. Last year at Cynosport (USDAA Nationals), she and her border collie Vixen won BOTH Grand Prix and Steeplechase finals at 18". That is a massive accomplishment! Rachel is a true Texan, fun and easy going. And her two youngest dogs have GREAT stopped contacts! I know you all will enjoy her.
