RINGCRAFT REBELS – where we do it better!
This session is the evening before Otley Show.
Welcome to our Ringcraft Rebels Big Dogs Ringcraft session …. we call it “Big Dogs” because it’s specifically for our larger breeds who really need to stride out when they move. With a maximum of just 6 dogs in the class, we’ll work through stacking, handling, and moving your show dog using only positive, treat and toy based methods. While you are waiting for your turn at the table, you will be expected to practice various exercises throughout the session so there is no “dead time”… every moment counts. You will have the opportunity to present and have your dog gone over, as well as to move your dog with others in front and behind to get them used to what happens in the ring. Bring your happy face and enthusiastic demeanour – training should be fun and I guarantee you’ll get so much more from your furry companion if you are both loving it! No harsh handling will be permitted.
Who is invited? Anybody already showing or who has undergone a private 121 session with Ringcraft Rebels.
Which dogs is this for? Larger breeds who need the space to move, drive and stride out with grace and elegance.
What should I bring? Treats …. lots and lots of tiny high value yummy treats that your dog will work for.
Should I bring toys? If your dog is toy-driven, then bring his favourite toy as his reward/reinforcer.
Do I need to bring a water bowl? Water is available but please bring your own bowl to avoid cross contamination.
Do I need poo bags? Yes, always have poo bags with you (that includes in the actual show ring too) … you just never know when they’ll do it.
What should I wear? Comfortable clothes and shoes that allow you to move at a speed you would in the show ring.
Do I need a chair? We envisage you standing and working with your dog throughout the entire hour. If you feel you will need to sit down, then please do bring your own chair as there is only one bench within the barn.
Please arrive 5 minutes before your session to ensure you get the full amount of time and do not disturb the class once it is already in session.
