Drive it Like You Stole It!

When we first start training a dog, most handlers worry most about control. Later, round about the time they start to get the control they want, they notice they have lost the speed.

That's when it's time to lose the drill and rediscover the thrill: Drive it Like You Stole It!

View from 4 Inch is proud to announce that TCKC will be offering an agility seminar that will focus on this very topic, Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 2010.

Full-day Novice/Open seminar will be Oct. 30, and is open to dogs competing in Novice or Open levels (or equivalent) and those preparing to trial in Novice.

A full-day Excellent seminar will be held Oct. 31. Private lessons will be available on Nov. 1.

Registration forms will be available for download at

Registration is open to TCKC members only until July 16. Non-member registrations will be accepted beginning July 17, on a first received basis (no hand delivered entries accepted during the first 48 hours).

Dana Pike is a multiple-time world competitor with 20 years experience in training students ranging from world team hopefuls to people aspiring to achieve a world class agility relationship with their dogs. Of special interest to small breed competitors, she has extensive experience working with "short dogs", particularly small terriers.

Please feel free to share the news with any one you think might be interested.
