I was at the seminar in Minnesota this past June and it was EXCELLENT!

This is not a seminar on how to train your dog. It's about how to get your dog and yourself ready and be successful at tests and trials.

I've been to alot of seminars and I left this one with more information than I have from other seminars in a long time.

I highly recommend it!!!!!!

Remember ALL the moneys collected from this seminar are going back to the Waterloo Club for their new training grounds.

Let's all support Waterloo Retriever CLub and learn something in the process.

Oh Miriam!!!! I'd love it if you'd come. It's just the handlers and their dogs.

The first day he gives his theories on handling and preparation. Then we all slogg through the tests and then are critiqued. He later will run a few of his dogs and explain how he read the test and why he did what he did when he did it.

There will be 2 sets of judges. One set of field trial judges for the trialers and a set of hunt test judges for us testers. They also critique your performance on how you ran their test.

The feedback is priceless.....

Your right Gerard, but trials, maybe not triple DQ's, are every weekend. Not too often someone is in your back yard that can really help you with your trial game plan and performance.

Just think'in,,,,,

By the way...if some of you do come from a distance, there is a really nice, dog friendly motel in Round Rock. The maids even place dog biscuits on the pillow for each night! It is about 10 miles from Triple Crown, is close to anything that you might need or want, and does give discounts for those participating in dog events.

Martha can get the motel info for you...

From what I understand it's all levels, because even gundogs can participate.

Rorem Seminar

More info:

Before the seminar, Dave has judges prepare set-ups like Hunt Tests: SH and MH tests, and Field Trials: QAA and CH stake tests.

Our team of judges will be Rick Greer, Tim Buck, and Bruce Bachert.

From the pool of dog/handler teams attending the seminar, a few teams from each level will be selected by Dave (with the seminar committee) to run the set-ups.

Then, at the seminar, he has a group of 4 or 5 dog/handler teams run each set-up just like it was a test or trial. Dave evaluates and critiques the handler, what their dog was thinking & doing, and what he would have done differently.

Each judge also tells the gallery what they are looking for and why.

Dave also demonstrates with dogs off his truck how to handle dogs on different tests, the use of holding blinds, the line and mat, and how to read a dog. The seminar uses both dead ducks and pheasants, and live flyers.

Our HQ hotel is the Baymont Inn, Round Rock, TX. They will give a rate of $59/night if you mention Triple Crown Dog Academy.

Baymont Inn & Suites
150 Parker Drive
Austin, TX 78728 (Austin address, but actually in Round Rock, TX)
Mention Triple Crown to receive the $59 a night rate.
Phone: 512-246-2800

Who from RTF is coming? Do we want to have an RTF get-together?

Post up!

Martha-
I'm VERY interested, but what do you think the odds are that he'd choose an 11 year old (very spry!!) dog to run set-ups? I would hate to fly her if she wouldn't run-would make more sense to come without her.

Thanks-
M
