Master Handling and troubleshooting


This seminar is geared towards teams that are already actively participating in Barnhunt and want to improve their skills and work on fixing any frustrating ring behaviors.

Every dog is different and each team will experience different challenges and successes during their Barnhunt journey.

Common struggles are Tunnel refusals, Indication, Distance challenges, Handling skills, scent differentiating, over arousal, lack of confidence. These are just a few things that will be targeted

During this seminar you will work one on one with our instructor(s) who will give you tips, tricks and techniques to help you. Every dogs run will be videoed then reviewed as a group to break them down and see the good, the bad, any indications or body language you may miss while being in the ring and what can be improved on.

Plus you can run in any level you would like, and run as many times as you would like.
