Gamekeepers is very pleased to welcome back Jason Docherty as our assistant trainer. Jason has experience training and running dogs at all Hunt Test levels and in Derby and Qualifying. He is patient, hard working, has mad obedience training skills and proved himself to be a valuable asset to the team last year. Jason will be working hand in hand with Mitch to insure all of the dogs are polished and ready for the 2017 test season.
Mitch, Jason and crew are heading to the milder climate of Camden, South Carolina for training this winter. We are very excited about the opportunity to lease these wonderful kennels and property. The grounds and ponds are wonderful and will give our dogs every opportunity to make 2017 a successful year.
In addition, our workshop schedule is shaping up with some excellent programs for 2017. Just announced is our new program “The Master Class”. This workshop is for handlers and dogs currently running at the AKC Master level that want to learn more about test strategy and test design. Check out our Schedule of Upcoming Workshops and Seminars page for details on this and other programs being offered throughout the year.
