Marion Crain will be presenting "Keeping the Connection" at Evansville Obedience Club on April 27 & 28, 2024.

Keeping the Connection focuses on how to make the leap from training to successful ring performances so that you can take the connection you build with your dog in training, into the ring.

This seminar focuses on how to make the leap from training to successful ring performances so that you can take the connection you build with your dog in training, into the ring. We will cover preparing to show your dog at each level (novice, open and utility), address common issues with each exercise for “green” dogs and how to avoid them, and will pay particular attention to issues of food and toy dependence and how to manage them. We will also cover how to use warm-ups at a show, ring entrances and transitions between exercises; ring exits and what to do after your performance, and how to maintain connection with your dog and build confidence in the ring, especially if things go sideways. Finally, we will address how to maintain your dog’s attitude over time as you show, including working on precision in ways that motivate your dog, recognizing exercises that are getting ready to break and what to do about it, and proofing—what it is, when and why to use it, and what kinds of proofing are worth doing and what are not.
