Oh boy! Tomorrow is Saturday.....

....and that means that Steeler and I will be attending the Julie Daniels Seminar down in RI at K9 Connection. I didn't think that I was that nervous about it .... but I was wrong! :-) I am sure it will be fine and lots of fun. I know there will be at least a couple of people there that I know - so know I will be able to relax and have fun with the spotty dog.

Speed’em Up Seminar

Emphasis on motivational games and handling techniques to bring out SPEED, DRIVE and CONFIDENCE!!
Topics Covered:
How to help the dog who is too serious
Shaping for DEMAND on the obstacles
Learn how to inspire your dog
REAL help on how to "lighten up!"
How to use differential reinforcement, clickers and jackpots
Learn to increase your yards/second to qualify and/or get more MACH points.
Plenty of individual help! A lot to do and learn, even without a dog!
Julie is a top agility competitor both nationally and internationally. She and her dogs have earned multiple trophies and medals at the IFCS World Agility Championships and is an award winning author of agility books and instructional dvds.


  1. Have fun! It will go great and Steeler will be awesome!

  2. Sounds like fun! I'm sure you guys will do great!! :)

  3. Have a great time, Jenn, and let us know some of the techniques you learn. I have a "serious" dog who could use to lighten up at times :)

  4. What a busy day! I am beat and Steeler is so tired that when he laid down with his head in his paws he kept falling over. :-)

    I think I am learning a lot. Hopefully I can post coherently about everything. But I think the major take home message is that it is all about our attitude.
