The Industry’s Hidden Treasure – Conformation Classes and Coaching
There is a huge area of dog training business that is not being utilized by most dog trainers and that is working with show dogs. So many people don’t take on show dog clients because they don’t feel they have enough experience, but there is a lot that skilled positive reinforcement trainers have to offer and this workshop will help them put the pieces together to offer conformation classes. Since the release of her first book in 2007, Vicki has created many successful techniques for training and perfecting show ring behaviors and walked the line between being a successful positive reinforcement trainer and being an owner/handler/breeder in the show ring. She has coached many longtime breeders, breed enthusiasts and professional handlers to teach them new ways to approach show dog training and problem solving.
