Bellarine Dog Activities Group is excited to announce that we will again be hosting Alexis Davison of Scholars in Collars to deliver dog training workshops in the Geelong region, over the weekend of 30 and 31 March 2019.
Alexis will deliver two different workshops, targeted to addressing some of the big challenges that many of us face when training our dogs:
Walk this Way.

Saturday 30 March 2pm to 5pm, or Sunday 31 March 9:30 am to 12:30.

Both workshops have positions for handlers with dogs, and for observers.

2) Ingrid Irwin‘s ‘Reactivity’ workshop planned for a weekend in May 2019. Bookings taken for 8 dogs at $110, observers $75. Participants will be asked to complete some background info and a goals list prior to the training. Ingrid recently ran an excellent information session for BDAG members about reactive dogs.
