July 21st 2019:  Heeling - Creating a Shaped Motivated Heeling Picture Workshop (Sydney)

Shade covers how to create the highly motivated heeling picture that I am known for using toy reward and food.  Working dogs and handlers that will get the most out of this one day workshop are expected to have a solid operant shaping foundation, to have a dog that brings back and outs a toy with no conflict, and to be of a highly motivated personality.  However, beginners are more than welcome to apply.
