DRY DOCK TRAINING
The March Dry Dock Water Work Workshop was held on Sunday, March 8th at Happy Tails in Portland, Maine. There was a beginner team workshop as well as an advanced workshop focusing on games and these workshops were going on at the same time!
Workshop #1 – Beginner Dry Dock - If you are new to water training or are a seasoned trainer with a “green” dog then this workshop is geared towards you! We will go over the basic tools that everyone needs in their toolbox to be successful in water work. Dogs do not need to have experience or a reliable retrieve.
Workshop #2 – Advanced Dry Dock Games – This workshop will take water work skills and incorporate them into fun, fast paced games. Keep those skills sharp without getting stuck in the rut of drilling or a boring practice routine. Dogs should have retrieving skills for this workshop.
**Working teams must choose one workshop for the entire day.
** Both workshops will be limited to 8 working teams.
** Cost for PWDsNE members is $75/working team; auditing free; non-members $90/working team; auditing $25;
**Water/coffee and light morning snacks will be provided; Teams need to provide their own lunch.
