    About the Clinic

    The goal is to give you the information and experience you need to continue your training on your own or with your friends. The participating dogs will be worked in two separate sessions. All attendees will receive a packet of information, including outlines of all lecture material, training ideas and an outline for training progression.

    The seminar will be filled on a prepaid, first-come, first serve basis. You may pay on line, visit www.crctc.org/tracking for details. You will be asked to sign a release the day of the event.

    General Info

    This event will be held rain or shine. We will be out working in the fields regardless of the weather. Please plan to bring appropriate clothing (including footwear). Lectures will be held in an open- sided covered building. There are public restrooms available for our use. Bring a harness and long line if you have them available, there may be some available. No Flexi leads! Please bring a 6’ leash and a flat buckle collar for your dog and high value treats.


    Participating dogs may be crated inside the covered meeting area. Non-participating dogs should be left at home unless they are comfortable and quiet residing in your vehicle throughout the day. All dogs are welcome to be walked on leash (no flexi leads) during breaks and lunchtime. No exercise pens.
