Looking forward to a fun-filled Saturday with Donna McLaughlin and her miniature horses, who have volunteered to be the animal of choice for our clicker training clinic.
We start at 10:00 a.m. and break for lunch (salad and chili) at noon. We resume at 12:30 and work until 2:30 or so, learning how to shape desired behavior in our horses. A great idea as we tend to get to complacent in our abilities and our standards when clicker training dogs. Using the horses will force us to revisit the principles of operant conditioning and will make us think 'out of the box' more as we break down the training into small slices.
We have room for 2 more people in our clinic so if you want to take advantage of this opportunity, it will cost your $75 to attend.
The clinic is held at Shadowbar Shepherds this Saturday, April 19th. We are located 1 km. north on Highway and 1/2 km. west on Township Road 7-5.
Hope to see you there.
Congratulations to Bailey and Nikki for passing the DOT test in nose work. So proud of you.
Get out your weave poles, your tunnels, barrels, and jumps!!!! Due South, our SAWHDA performance team, has once more been invited to perform at Heritage Acres on September 13th.
Never to early to start practicing.
