Performance Scent Dog
Sanctioned Nose Work Match
Special Guest Lecture
by Judge Stacy Barnett!
October 15th 2016
At Horseshoe Bend Park in Frenchtown, NJ
Start the day with a lecture on trial preparation and then get assistance directly from Stacy during our Novice Match.
This Match is the complete package!
Stacy will guide you through what she calls the "Secret Sauce" of Nosework Trial Preparation, based off of her Four Cornerstones of Trial Preparation. Following Stacy's mantra of CONFIDENCE, MOTIVATION, SKILLS and STAMINA, you will get a guided tour for effectively laying a critical foundation that goes above and beyond standard skill training. This lecture will be especially valuable for competitors who struggle with timid dogs or dogs who are a challenge to trial in new locations.
