?Getting Started with Young Dogs?

Noted amateur trainer and field trialer Jack Vollstedt will discuss his highly successful method for training young dogs. From choosing a puppy through bringing it home, Jack will proceed to early basics and more advanced training at an early age.

Jack has trained many champion retrievers and has competed in many National trials. He has been very successful in training young dogs. Notably, Volwood?s Mollie was #2 on the 1998 Derby list and competed in that year?s National Amateur Retriever Championship. In 1999 Mollie was Top Amateur Dog and a National Open Retriever Championship finalist. Volwood?s Peaches and Cream was National Derby Champion in 2000.

Hi Russ, Is this an annual thing? Does the club do any picnic trials?
I'll be down there for the winter in about two weeks. I'd like to attend the seminar but the problem is that's my wifes birthday and even though she loves the dogs that wouldn't be her way of spending her birthday

Hi Steve,

We only have about eleven active members in the club so we are doing good to put on two field trials a year and an occasional co-sponsored seminar. Eight of the eleven were (are) training together this weekend out at Mag 7, 150 miles from home. I just got home.

Well I would call that a picnic trial.
We are leaving here thursday, can't wait. Got about 6 inches of snow last night and should have a low of around 10 degrees tonight.
See you down there. I'll be throwing birds for Patti all winter.

11-26-2005, 10:08 PM
It was 86 yesterday and 76 today. The lows were in the 50's.

You will have fun with Patty.

Steve, did you find a place to park the RV? Drive safe through all that snow. Hope we get a chance to train

Checked with the Oasis. Probably pull into to Wister first and go from there. Hard to make a decision from 700 miles away.

You will definitely be able to keep supplied with crank while staying at the Oasis. :lol:

:shock: :shock: Care to elaborate on that Russ? Is the Oasis a bad Idea? What would you suggest?

Lee Larson stayed there one winter. I would check with her. She had some great stories. You can stay out at Slab City for free.

Slab City? Need any and all info you can give me. Due to our length of stay hook ups would be a plus. Also my wife will continue working from the trailer via the internet

I would love to attend the seminar but with travel costing what it does these days I can't possibly justify the expense. May I suggest having someone record the seminar and selling a dvd? A great way to raise extra money for the club and I know I would buy one.

Ahh come on Laura come on down! Fuel prices are dropping. My fathger in law in Lake Havasu City AZ says gas is down around $1.75, diesel still about $2.60.
Come down in February and stay for a month, you can run 4 or 5 trials. It's worth the cost of travel.

Just filled up, Regular in Yuma is $2.12 a gallon

30.00 to listen to jack all day sounds too good to be true.

For any one attending that plans to stay in a nearby hotel, I recommend getting in your hotel reservations right away as it will still be waterfowl season and the Calipatria Inn fills up that time of year.

Here is a link to their website: http://www.calipatriainn.com/

So who else will be there? My birthday is the day before the seminar--Friday the 13th. :shock: Anyone care to join me on the patio so I am not all by my lonesome? I'll be arriving at the Calipatria early evening.

Someone warn Patti that I'm coming to town!


ps Note to self, bring dark sunglasses for Saturday morning in addition to the other items Russ listed. 8) :twisted:

I thought you were tied up that weekend. I was not planning on coming down until early Saturday. I do not know if I could keep up with you on Friday night and make dinner on Saturday. I plan to party on Saturday night. Looking forward to seeing you again.
