After their successful debut in the field this Fall, Chick and Bode are now tearing it up in the show ring. Thanks to our good friend Bryana Pierce. Chick has been “in the purple” every weekend she has been out and her brother Bode is not lagging far behind. Maybe Santa will bring some new Champions for Christmas?
Chick is Gamekeepers Boom Chicka Wow Wow JH and Bode is Gamekeepers Double Black Diamond JH WCX. Bode is owned by Ray and Eloise Girt and he is their first performance dog. Chick and Bode are two years old and are out of Ruff, GCH Flatford Ruffles and Flourishes WC and Dazzle, CH Gamekeepers Black Diamond CD MH WCX.
The Blind Workshop is coming to Florida in February and is now open for entries. This workshop is being presented to help handlers succeed in training and running better blinds. The focus of this workshop will be solely on blinds and will only utilize marks as influence for blinds. During each of the three (3) days, working teams will perform various drills to improve lining, casting and handling on blinds. In addition, multiple types of blinds will be run each day. Blinds will be run that represent different levels of difficulty and each blind will be rated so that handlers may chart their progress during the seminar.
Complete details and registration information, as well as a listing of other programs being held throughout the year, can be found in the premium on our Schedule of Upcoming Workshops and Seminars page. We look forward to seeing you there!
We have some exciting changes for the 4 day workshop this year. First, we are taking it on the road. This year the 4 day will be hosted by Clint and Sherie Catledge at the fabulous Bear Country Retrievers training grounds. If you have not been there, it is a must visit place for retriever trainers. It is truly a training mecca.
Second, we have updated the program to combine the “Best of Mitch” (drills, concept training and his ability to problem solve on the fly with you and your dog) with the best elements of his set up seminar. See premium for details. This is going to be a great program!
THIS PROGRAM ALWAYS SELLS OUT IMMEDIATELY. Do not hesitate if you want a working spot. Auditors are encouraged and we are offering them the opportunity to participate in the set up discussion. In auditors will be designing the final set up on day 4.
