Red Huskies is excited to host a weekend of nose work with Garrett Dyer at Springdale Preparatory School in New Windsor, MD.

The weekend will be split into 4 workshops each appropriate to the team’s level of training. Each workshop will focus on strengthening the working relationship and communication between dog and handler through a range of challenging search scenarios with respect to the dogs level of training.  Each workshop will also feature particular challenges typically encountered at that level and how to introduce or hone the skills needed to perform at that level and introduce concepts at the handler’s next level.

Teams can register for any or all workshops.  Search scenarios and discussions will vary between workshops and will cater to the workshop level’s experience. A small questionnaire will be sent to teams ahead of time to identify each team’s skill level, experience and what they would like to take home from the workshop.

Day 1 (Morning): NW1 and NW2 teams.

Day 1 (Afternoon): NW3 teams and those preparing for elite

Day 2 (Morning): Currently working in elite and summit teams

Day 2 (Afternoon): Currently working in elite and summit teams

Each session may cover a similar concept but tweaked for the session’s level. For instance, more hides may be added or more search area added as the difficulty in level rises.  For the two elite/summit sessions, search areas may be different and may cover different concepts. If a team registers for both sessions- they will not rerun the same scenarios unless it is with a different dog. Either the concept or the search area will change for teams signing up for both sessions. We are likely to use all new areas and similar concepts or repeat a larger area with a different concept or hides- unless there are all unique teams. Get it? You must register and pay for each session separately.
