Indication and Systematic Search Training, with Jens Frank

05-07 April 2019, Guildford
This three-day event hosts Jens Frank, an experienced handler and SWDI (Scandinavian Working Dog Institute) instructor from Sweden.
Suitable for both professional and sports teams at any level of experience. Many dog handlers may not yet have established a solid indication, and even amongst more experienced dog teams there is almost always a need to train systematic searching.
INDICATION TRANING: Participants will learn how to train the indication they want to have. If the dog is highly motivated it will have a working alert by the end of the course.
SYSTEMATIC SEARCH TRAINING: Participants will learn how to teach the dog to search small or large areas, buildings or vehicles in a systematic way on and off lead.
For systematic search training a working indication is required, however handlers still working on the indication throughout the event will get to see others train the next steps so they can train it themselves later on.
Group size is limited to 8 handlers and 8 spectators. All dogs attending will need to have high motivation to work for treats and/or toys. Please keep in mind that this event is for training indication and/or systematic searching and not for solving reward issues.
Handlers: £397
Spectators: £194
