What a difference a week makes!
Was it really only just one short week ago?
An air of quiet anticipation surrounded us all.
The hard work was done.
Everything was ready.
We were prepared!
Twas the night before seminars and all around DogLogic
Excitement was mounting, it was sure to be magic.
Anticipation of all he would share
We knew that Lee Gibson soon would be there.
Yes, indeed it did feel a little like “The Night before Christmas” and our week with International competitor, judge and competitor, Lee Gibson, was about to live up to all expectations!
In addition to his undoubted dog training and agility handling expertise, Lee’s experience as an International Judge gave everyone valuable insights into the challenges judges aim to provide when designing courses.
This, in turn, gave all of us much greater understanding of how to approach our course walking in order to maximize the time allowed.
We became more aware of what to look for when planning our handing strategies and how to utilize this knowledge to inform our own future training.
It was a refreshingly different way to present this invaluable information. Information of which every handler at every level could make immediate use.
Lee clearly defined the skills needed by dogs and handlers and, in his terms, which skill sets needed to be perfected by both.
On the spot training plans were immediately taking shape.
To say that the week was a great success would be an understatement!
If you were able to be here, it really was wonderful to see you all. If you missed it this time, be sure to reserve your spot for next year. Signup for our email newsletter to receive details of 2018 dates, coming soon.
