Steve White is Coming!
The amazingly awesome Steve White is coming to NZ for a three day workshops on the 26th, 27th and 28th Oct., at Unitec in Mt Albert, Auckland.
Update from Steve White: I’m ramping it up for this one folks. New material and videos I’m excited to present for the first time.
The three days are focusing on Tracking and Scent Work, and how to read your dog when they are actively scenting.
Scent Sports is opening up a new world for everyone, pet dog trainers and pet owners alike are enjoying both the social and competitive side of using their dogs to look for specific scents.
Scent and tracking is a great activity for you and your to enjoy walks together, and can be used everyday within the family environment. Teach them to track down your children when you need them for dinner, or your keys when you drop them, these workshops will start you on the way to enjoying watching your dog when they are using their nose for what it was made for…locating specific scents.
