Bring in the New Year with Shade Whitesel


What a rare opportunity to work first hand with Shade (your dog will Thank You!). Shade is a popular training presenter.

Her method, using multiple marker cues, has been a huge turning point for many dog trainers in multiple dog sports.

Dogs that do best in this seminar are dogs with toy/tug drive. If your dog prefers food as a reinforcement over tugging, there will be lots of information for you but it is advised that you audit.
