Retrievers and handlers enjoy training

B.C. Labrador Retriever Club host two retriever training workshops by Mike Lardy of Total Retriever Training two weekends in Aldergrove.

The B.C. Labrador Retriever Club was proud to host two retriever training workshops by Mike Lardy of Total Retriever Training from Georgia over these past two weekends in Aldergrove.

On June 21 to 25 a workshop covered basics and transition. Beginner dogs worked through retrieving scenarios and handlers with intermediate dogs learned to problem solve.

On June 28 to July 1 Lardy was joined by Denis Voigt from Ontario for the Advanced Workshop. This level involved more handling concepts which were demonstrated, discussed and then dog handlers worked their way through these.

There were over 50 participants in each workshop, who walked away with more enthusiasm and knowledge to take back to their retriever training.
