 I only teach small classes. Usually about 4 or less students.

 This way everyone gets the personal attention they need.



 TRACKING:  Thursday and Saturday starting at 9 am

we got plenty of rain, so we will be tracking in the hills. Now is the time to start. Actually tracking season will be pretty short. Limited space available


 
         Scent work: Thursday 3 pm and Sunday 9 am 

Drop ins welcome if dog is already on scent. There will be 3-4 search areas depending on complexity


This is from a seminar I attended a couple weeks ago. Unknown number of hides (Dori found 6 out of 8).

 
TEAM: Tuesday 9 am

          What is TEAM?:   http://fenziteamtitles.com/about/ 
My dogs Cari and Dori have TEAM 1+, Ekko has TEAM 2 and Amsie has TEAM 3








For me training a dog has to be fun or at least a pleasant experience for both, dog and handler.

I always try to adjust to the individual temperament of the dog. Each dog learns different and I try to adjust my training accordingly. I only use positive and kind methods.

 

EXPERIENCE:

     trained 4 different dogs to Mission Ready status in different specialties: Wilderness, Disaster, Water and Cadaver searching, and FEMA certified 3 of them.

   Been trainings advisor for local groups several years and helped train numerous dogs to Mission Ready status.
