At the moment, my major focus are long-distance classes - they work really great as I can supervise the whole process, unlike as with seminars. So you're more than welcome to join in the fun!
I'm still doing 2 camps per year in LoLaBuLand, exclusively for my on line students.
The dates for 2014 are now fixed: 16-19 June and 22-25 September.
There are some changes this year. We’ll have a smaller group and only 4 days as 5 days was a bit too much for the dogs. Also, this time we won’t go with “first come” system, but those who took more classes will have an advantage in getting a spot as with less spots and just two camps, I guess they will fill quickly… Both camps are reserved for on line students and you can send an application for a spot till end of January. Right after, I’ll let everybody know who got in.
The price for 4 days is 360e and you will be asked to pay 100e in advance to reserve a spot once the spot is confirmed in February.
Dates for 2015 will be known in January.

Yes, yes, yes! I’m interested! Coming with pyrsheps and that strange black dog 😀
I would like to see you in Czech Republick -- in Brno soon 🙂
Have a nice day !!

I live in Canada but am working towards my certification to teach puppy & adolescent dog classes.
I love the bond that is created when both dog and human work, laugh, and enjoy the lightbulb moments together when “cues” are taught by learning tricks and playing games.
Do you offer any workshops on your class outlines and the games you play to teach the cues?
An example of what I’m thinking about is a goofy video I created with my crew. Something where the cues can be both used as “obedience” in social situations and also when playing with your dogs. (ie..”touch” a strangers hand to say hello instead of jumping up, or “target” as in go somewhere and lay down (a down essentially) but really you’re teaching “down/stay” but I’m using toys to teach the cue (shaping) so the reward are treats and also getting to play.
I love the tricks videos in your puppy class to teach walking beside you and would love to know how you incorporate them into a class outline.
I also find people’s faces light up and they beam with pride when I use agility equipment to make learning fun (recall through a tunnel, over a low jump, walk along a plank….)
Very interesting videos, thanks! I don’t have any workshops for instructors, my puppy classes are still work in progress. Will try to do some videos of the process one day, I promise! 🙂
I´m interested in both workshop and camp!!!
Is the workshop also for fun agility teams? We don´t do professionall.
Of course, only fun agility teams are allowed to participate in a first place!:) So you’re very welcome!:)
Do you have a list of your seminars in the States? I know you will be in Michigan in 2011, but wanted to know if you will be anywhere else? I’d planned to attend your one last fall in North Carolina but got a new job. I’d love to come with my Pyr Shep, Micah!
I think the dates are not yet completely fixed, but the places I’m going to this time are FL-MI-MN-VI -- end of January, beginning of February. Will post it when I know for sure. Would be great to meet you and Micah, he looks very cute!
I’m interested in both; the one-week camp and of course also the shorter workshops!
Do you know yet if any of your US locations will have some topics for puppies? My youngest will be about 9-10 months 🙂 and I hope to try running contacts with her.
I would guess all of them will… I will post a complete list with contact addresses soon and then you can contact them directly.
We would love to come as well, though are sort of agility beginners 🙂
Whereabouts in Slovenia is LoLaBuLand? We’re coming from the south of Germany…
All the best,
Well, beginnings are the most important, so you’re very welcome too! We’re 15 minutes east from Ljubljana, so less than 4 hours from Muenchen. And for those from other directions: 2 hours from Venezia, 3 hours from Wien, 1 hour from Adriatic Sea, 1 hour from Alps. It’s a small country, so we’re close to everything.:)
I’m interested in your camp, but 2 years ago, we were in an agility camp and he was very disobedient, I could not imagine, that he can be so disobedient. So I’m afraid of camps. 🙂 And I hope I’ll have enough money for this. Do you know anything about costs in advance?
The problem with dogs with not so high motivation is that it’s very hard to keep them motivated to run agility every day for the whole week… But maybe it won’t be a problem anymore for you till next year! This year, there is a 2-day seminar, maybe that would be better for him for now? The seminar is 140e for two days, 19-20.8.
