We are thrilled to announce that Nancy Reyes, CNWI, has agreed to stay one more day after her duties as the NACSW™ Certifying Official at the NW1 and NW2 Bristol, RI trials to present two half-day workshops at MasterPeace! These workshops will take place on Monday, Oct. 15th and will be well worth taking a half day off from work! The morning topic will be “Hide Placement 101” and the afternoon topic will be “Problem Solving.” These will be 4 hour workshops, with 10 working spots and unlimited auditors in each. Due to the anticipated popularity of working spots, and in order to be fair to everyone, we will be awarding working spots in both segments by lottery, to be drawn on Oct. 1st.
In Hide Placement 101, you will learn: how to place thoughtful hides to work specific skills, how scent moves in the environment, and how to read your dog better. As we all know, hide placement can make or break your training program! This is a HANDS-ON workshop; AUDITORS will get to participate in the hide placement portion, so be prepared to work!
Do you have problems with false alerts, trapping or pooling odor, or other issues? Problem Solving is the workshop to work these out! Nancy will address the foundation issues that can cause these challenges and give you the tools to solve them. Drive and motivation will also be discussed, as will strategies for competing in multiple venues.
The morning segment will run from 8 AM – 12 noon; the afternoon segment will run from 1-5 PM. Working spots cost $100 and will be limited to 10 for each segment; audit spots are unlimited and cost $60 (that’s just $15 per hour!). Due to extreme interest, we will be awarding working spots by lottery, to be drawn on Oct. 1st. Checks will be deposited after the draw on Oct. 1st. Refunds, minus $15, will be given until Oct. 5th; no refunds after that date. With the number of trials coming up this Fall, these workshops will be popular, so get your registration in soon! A registration form will be available shortly!
