Introduction to dummy work, part 2

Dummy training has its origins in hunting and is becoming increasingly popular as an activity for working dogs of all breeds. Situations similar to hunting are simulated and dummies are used instead of real game.

Dummy work includes other exciting training elements in addition to retrieving. It is a varied and challenging activity in which the dog can use all its senses and is mentally and physically challenged.

This seminar is aimed at dog handlers and builds on Part 1. We will continue to work on the basic elements of dummy work (basic position, steadiness, behavioural chain apport, back/stop whistle), as well as the lead-in in combination with the small search. The seminar day is also open to "career changers" with previous knowledge of dummy work.

All fetch-loving dogs regardless of breed or origin are welcome.

Learning content:

- The finer points of apport
- The issue of impulse control
- Deepening the topic of markings
- Deepening the topic of instruction
- Consolidate small search
- Combining instruction and small search
