NEXT UP — Kat Bosley will lead a workshop for dog and handler teams that focuses on traversing wooded, singletrack trails. The event is Saturday, April 16 starting at 10 a.m. It will be held at the Jefferson Memorial Forest to accommodate multiple participants and afford everyone the opportunity to learn in a real hiking environment. All participants will meet with Kat and Matt 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. The hike will traverse a true singletrack (maybe muddy) trail, which may present some natural obstacles to overcome. A handler better equips his or her dog to manage everyday situations by developing canine responsiveness under challenging conditions.
As always with our Saturday events, socializing and practical handling instruction will be top priorities. Because the event will be held completely outdoors on forestry trails, please dress accordingly. In the event of inclement weather, all listed participants will be contacted.
The Jefferson Memorial Forest, located at 11311 Mitchell Hill Road, can be reached at (502) 368-5404. Restrooms are located at the Welcome Center.
Please call or come by the Training Center to sign up. The cost is $25 per dog-handler team. White Fang Ventures Platinum members will be given a discounted price of $20 per dog-handler team. Take me to your membership page to become a member!
