During the 2017 training year, the chapter sponsored two clinics. The chapter hopes to conduct similar clinics in 2018.
Force Fetch Clinic – June: This was a special clinic for UT Handlers who want to successfully take their dog through Force Fetch. It was hosted by Tom Swezey of Indian Brook Kennels, an experienced trainer and NAVHDA breeder. Participation is limited to 10 handlers per day. (A second day will be added if there’s enough interest.) There will be a fee. Expect an invitation through Signup Genius when details are finalized.
Advanced Skills Training Clinic – July 8-9: This was a special two-day clinic to help UT handlers learn how to train their dogs to be successful in the skills possessed by a finished gun dog, including steadiness in the field and duck search. The clinic will be hosted by Blaine Carter of the NAVHDA Yankee Chapter in Maine. Attendance will be limited. There will be a fee. Expect an invitation through Signup Genius when details are finalized.
