NCNC Draft Workshop
October 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT
INTRODUCTION TO DRAFT WORK FOR YOU AND YOUR NEWF!
Topics and Activities for the day will include:
- Equipment you will need
- How to successfully introduce your dog to a harness and cart.
- Mentors will be available to help you with the equipment on hand and guide you through the different exercises. (Each dog responds differently when being introduced to a harness and cart and each team will be advised based on their dogs’ response and experience.)
- A Beginner Draft Dog Course will be set up for everyone to walk through. All BDD exercises are done on leash and include obedience, a maneuvering course and a freight haul.
- You will receive handouts with suggestions on where to buy equipment, helpful hints on training draft work and a copy of Beginner Draft Dog rules.
- $10 for a working dog spot
- Listen and Learn without a dog, FREE!
We always welcome spectators, however we do ask that for the success of the dogs learning new skills, they be the only dogs in attendance.
Any questions, please contact Kristin Julcher
