    Default Hillmann Seminar

    Went today to Bill Hillmann's seminar today. Folks very very worthwhile and informative. Bill good at explaining the information he imparts. I would recommend everyone try and attend one of his events. Doesn't mean you have to change your program but just numerous new drills I had not heard of before (Star Drill and 7 bumper Lining drill) you can add to your portfolio. You saw lots, learned lots and got to participate if you chose. Great day for puppy socialization!

    Had to miss the first day due to truck issues!

    Thanks to Peter Mottola for organizing the event. Thanks to the Long Point crew for their work. Thank's to the DeVos's whose beautiful property the seminar was on. And thanks to the sponsors. Special thanks to Purina for the goodies. Love that Pro Plan #1 in my books!!! Great day to be had by all!

    Mary Lynn, Glad that you enjoyed it. It was a great group of participants and demonstration dogs. What most people commented was the approach was very amateur friendly no matter what level you were training at. Not only did the participants enjoy themselves and learn a lot, but Bill who had not been in Canada for over 20 years learned to keep his passport handy and also how much fun and hospitable Canadians can be. Thanks again to everyone who attended, to the sponsors and to Baypoint Kennels for the use of their property.
    It was a great weekend....eh!
