WHAT IS THIS SEMINAR ABOUT

What is the seminar and what makes it unique from all the others out there.

What this seminar is, is a chance to explore and learn new ways of handling the dog that you have.  To improve your handling of your dog!  Not every dog is or can be a blistering fast speed deamon, just as not every dog has to work and struggle to make time.  There are handling techniques that are unique to each type of dog.  There are ways of handling each dog to its fullest potential.

Do not come to this seminar expecting to learn some new hot move, or expecting to learn the secret to having .5 second weave poles.  Come to this seminar to get real world ideas on how to handle and improve your working with your companion.

This is a working seminar and as such be prepared to work.  You can't learn to handle by sitting down you learn to handle by doing.  Bring lots of treats, lots of toys, lots of water and be prepared to learn, train and run!

WHO AM I

My Name is Carol Fatheree and I am a computer programmer for NCI Building Systems in Houston Texas.  That is what I do in the real world.  In the dog world I have been involved in showing and training dogs for 10 years.  I started my career in dogs with my little 3 lb spit fire U-CDX Rayjoy's Dixie Darling CDX, AX, AAD, FD, CGC....  U-CD Ruff N Rowdy Rangler CDX (HOF) was my second dog also a pomeranian who was my first dog to earn a dog world award in acquiring his CD and he was also my first all breed HIT winner.  Due to bad knees he was unable to play in agility.  After training the 2 poms I determined that I needed another breed to fit my lifestyle.  I searched and researched and determined I wanted a Border Collie,  I now have OTCH, ADCH, ONYX, U-CDX Bugaboo's Ragin Cajun UDX, MX, MXJ, TD, ASCA-UD, ADC, EAC, EGC, EJC, RS-E, GS-E, JS-E, CGC (9 year old male) and CH, MACH2, ADCH, U-CDX Wildfire Le Bon Ton Roulette VCD3, ASCA-CD, EAC, EGC, EJC, RS-E, GS-E, JS-E, FMX, CGC (1998 AKC National Agility Champion 20", 3rd place AKC Nationals 2000 24", 4th in the 2001 AKC Agility Invatational) (4 year old male), Wildfire Fidelis Le Cajun Lagniappe (10 month old bitch) and Bugaboos Le Cajun Mardi Gras (3 months old bitch)....

Now the question is what do I have to offer you in a semianr.  I have been doing agility for 10 years and during those 10 years I have handled many different breeds and run many different style of dogs.  I have shown and titled pomeranians, jack russell terriers, cockers spaniel, am staff terrier, australian shepherd, sheltie and border collies.  Each of these breeds required different ways of handling.  Successfully handling each of these dogs have given me a broad spectrum in viewing courses with finding different successful ways to handle sequences.  I would like to share these insites with you and your canine partners!!
