February 9, 2020 – Larimer County Fairgrounds
2020’s February indoor training day will be held February 9 from 8am to 3pm in the McKee building of Larimer County Fairgrounds. Nik Wright, Pheasants Forever biologist, will be the featured speaker. Nik will present ‘Scouting Your Fields: Diving Deeper into Habitat & Hunting Strategies to Successfully find Upland Game.’ Obedience foundations training sessions (for the dogs), youth challenge events (for the kids), and a potluck lunch will round out the day’s program. Other sessions will include:
- Strategic Planning: Developing a foundation based training plan for your dog
- Entering Your Dog’s Mind: Understanding dog behavior and how to influence it
- Gaining Your Dog’s Focus: Using obedience and cooperation exercises to encourage your dog to work through distractions
This year the day is free of charge to members, thanks to the discount granted to non-profit groups by the fairgrounds. If you have not already joined or renewed membership, you will be able to do so at the training day.
Please be aware that dogs will be allowed in the building only during obedience sessions. Be prepared to crate your dogs at all other times. Frequent breaks will be scheduled so that you can water and walk your dogs, so bring leashes and waste bags for these breaks.
