All Dog Adventures would like to congratulate Maggie Lamb on earning her CTDI Certification! CTDI stands for Certified Trick Dog Instructor and is earned through Kyra Sundance's Do More With Your Dog organization. To earn the CTDI Certificate, Maggie had to take both a written and video exam to demonstrate her understanding of canine learning theory and her ability to teach tricks.
Maggie (and her Golden Retriever, Stella) teach the Beginner Tricks class at ADA. Stella knows A LOT of tricks! Maggie started teaching Stella tricks as a very young puppy. Tricks helped to build Stella's confidence, improve her coordination and body awareness, gave her things to show off on therapy dog visits, and made learning fun! Here at All Dog, we're really big on tricks - the benefits of teaching a few to your dog are endless! Tricks are also a blast to train, and even more fun to show your friends!
If you're interested in trick training, ADA is hosting a CTDI Certification Workshop in December. This workshop will focus on teaching you the skills needed to earn your CTDI, and is lead by Kyra Sundance herself! You'll learn over 30 tricks during the weekend, and get to bring your own dog to practice on! Auditing positions are also available for those that would rather just watch. For more information on the workshop, visit http://domorewithyourdog.com/pages/ctdiworkshop13.html. Use coupon code EARLYBIRD to save $35 on registration.
All Dog Adventures is hosting 4 WCRL Rally Trials October 26-27, 2013. Rally is a sport where dog and handler heel through a course. The course is made up of signs that give the handlers instructions such as "right turn" or "leave your dog and call to heel". Teams are given point deductions for incorrect performance of the signs, and the team with the highest score and fastest time places first. All Dog Adventures offers two levels of rally classes (beginner and advanced) and many of our students will be competing in our upcoming trials. Feel free to come out and watch to learn more about this fun sport!
We're still taking entries, email email@example.com for premim.
