I would like to inform everyone of a training seminar hosted by the Madison Retriever Club.

The seminar will be held at the Madison Retriever Club in Stoughton, WI on April
19th starting at 9am. The cost is $30 per participant. This fee is payable directly
to the Madison Retriever Club. Current MRC members can attend the seminar for no
charge. If a non-MRC member attends and wishes to join MRC the day of the seminar
you may apply the $30 towards their annual membership dues.

This seminar will focus mainly on correcting common "line manner" problems.
The majority of hunt tests failures are a result of problems that occur within feet
of the handler. This seminar will address those problems, and show how these problems
can be avoided in the future. Basicaly this is a "trouble shooting" seminar
for the handlers and their dogs, versus a "training day" seminar where
marking and handling are the main focus.

I would like everyone to bring their dog and be prepared to participate hands on
to address their specific problems.

This seminar will cover such topics/problems as;

- Having the dog behave in holding blinds.
- Getting to the line from the holding blind.
- Creeping and breaking.
- Sticking and mouthing birds.
- Maintaining line manners throughout the year.

Feel free to send me an e-mail or call me if you have any questions or suggestions
for the seminar. My contact information is;

Please RSVP for this event to by April 12th. The seminar
fee can be paid the day of the event.
