May 6: Dry Land Water Workshop

The GPWDC invites you to a dry land water training workshop on May 6, 2017 with Adele Yunck instructing! 
The focus of the workshop is to gain skills necessary for PWDCA water tests.  The event is open to members and non-members and is an all breed event. 

Adele Yunck is a nationally-known, positive method obedience trainer and author.  She is known for being able to break down exercises into simple steps which allow the dog to be successful.  Adele excels at developing training plans to meet the needs of each individual dog.  

Adele will provide instruction verbally, using her methods for training the obedience skills needed to pass PWDCA water tests, such as retrieving, delivery to hand and directed retrieve, and then provide more specific feedback to working teams. No matter what your skills level, you will gain something from this experience.

This seminar is limited to 18 working spots, with early registration for GLPWDC members.
