NCNC Draft Workshop

October 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

 INTRODUCTION TO DRAFT WORK FOR YOU AND YOUR NEWF!

Draft Workshop Entry Form

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.)
  • 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

We are also looking for volunteers with draft experience to act as mentors for the teams that are entered, as well as equipment to borrow for the day. Please contact Kristin if you are interested.
