Introduction to Dog Sports Seminar
When: Sunday, April 30th, 2023
Where: Rancho Santa Margarita Facility
Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Instructors: Laurie Zurborg, World Agility Team Member & Ranaye Kahn
This seminar will give you a unique opportunity to train with the Founder of Wags and Wiggles.
Laurie has competed in most dog sports with various dogs ranging from a chihuahua, sheltie, aussie, border collies and even a Catahoula. As a result, she has a wealth of knowledge how to create an amazing relationship with your puppy or dog.
No prior training required. Perfect for all age dogs (3 months and up) but geared towards young dogs. Dog must be physically healthy with no injuries. Low impact, full of fun and games for confidence building. Exercises will give you an intro to behaviors needed for a variety of dog sports.
Most exercises will be easily replicated at home. Limited to 10 students. This seminar is not appropriate for reactive dogs. Dogs must be friendly, food motivated, and like to learn. There will not be any dog to dog play. This seminar is meant to enhance and build the connection between you and your dog. However there will be a discussion on how to introduce your dog to social situations.
We have a variety of exercises planned but there will be breaks. Due to limited space inside the building, clients may be asked to keep dogs in crates or inside your vehicle (weather dependent) when your dog is on their break. You can be with your dog the whole time. We have lots of options and will ensure everyone is comfortable.
