Back to Basics Clinic

June 23, 2018

Often our dog’s first step on a flank is towards their sheep or last step is falling into their sheep. Either one applying pressure to the stock which can upset them at the pen, move balance on a lift, or collapse that crack we were hoping to exploit for a shed.

So I thought going Back to Basics would be a great way to start out this summer. We’ll spend a day working on the first and last steps of a flank and get a better understanding of how to eliminate unwanted travel and fall-in on our stops. We will also be calibrating our voice with our intentions. Learning how to ask and get a half flank.

Previous clinics were great fun with measurable improvement from dogs and handlers at the end of each day. Lots of work and opportunity to get better. Work as many dogs as you like. The goal is to make sure you walk away with a clear understanding so you can keep working at home.

Open to 8 handlers and as many dogs as you would like. I keep these clinics small so we get a lot of work and have plenty of time for questions.

Email to reserve your spot.

Cost: $100 for a working slot, $35 for an auditing spot

Lunch will be provided.
