Matthew Duffy will lead a workshop for dog and handler teams that will focus on traversing wooded, singletrack trails. The event, Dogs on the Singletrack Trail, will start at 10 o’clock in Jefferson Memorial Forest on Nov. 22, 2014.
To accommodate multiple participants and afford everyone the opportunity to learn in a real hiking environment, we have chosen to have the event at Jefferson Memorial Forest. All participants will meet with Matthew before the hike begins at the Memorial’s Welcome Center.
The overall goal of the workshop is to sharpen obedience commands, build confidence in handler/dog teamwork while operating in a less familiar setting. This hike will traverse a true singletrack (maybe muddy) trail that will present some natural obstacles to overcome. By developing canine responsiveness under challenging conditions, a handler better equips their dog to manage everyday situations.
As always with our Saturday events, socializing and practical handling instruction will be top priorities.
This event will be held completely outdoors on forestry trails, please dress accordingly. In the event of extremely foul weather, all listed participants will be contacted. There are restrooms located at the Welcome Center.
The Jefferson Memorial Forest, located at 11311 Mitchell Hill Road, can be reached at (502) 368-5404.
Please call or come by the Duffy’s Dog Training Center to sign up. The cost is $25 per dog/handler team for the day. White Fang Ventures Platinum members will be given a discounted price of $20 per dog/handler team.
