Desiree Snelleman - May 2016
Desiree Snelleman will be coming to the Field (Northridge) May 20-22 for a full three days of training.
Friday will be Course Analysis. Effective course analysis helps us to identify lines, also known as the path of the dog. We need to "respect" those lines. In this seminar you will gain a better understanding of the "ideal path of the dog" and how to read lines so that you will be better equipped to accurately and efficiently direct your dog on course. This seminar is open to students of all levels.
Saturday will be an Almost Masters session, for teams that are currently competing and continuing to train. We will be doing sequencing in this class, with a focus on handling.
Sunday (currently full, accepting wait list) will be a Masters sesion, for students who are currently competing at the Masters level in AKC or USDAA.
Each session will be from 8:30 to 5 with a lunch break. The cost is $175 per day. Auditing is $50 per day. Lunch, drinks and snacks will be provided.
