You lucky thing! I did have a one to one with Jenny, but can't go to her group classes as it's during the day at a time I work.Tractorgirl said:true re: crufts champions - I am lucky in that I can get some access to the top trainers - my trainer had Jenny Lunn run a session last year, Neil Short is coming later this year.
In addition, with my next dog, I hope to train with Kim Innes since she runs sessions at a (different) local training centre for a couple of days each month. The training centre has regular visiting trainers too.
I may invest in a couple of dvd's for my birthday in sept - if I do, then you're welcome to have a borrow.
That's about a 2 hour drive for me. I've seen Lorraine's obedience, she is very good too.Tractorgirl said:no - I'm in Suffolk. It's a newish club - but the woman who runs it is into her obedience! She is entirely to blame for getting me started.
Bet your 1-1 with Jenny was fun - I really warmed to her as I liked the straight talking. Mind you I was exhausted after her 'play' training!!!
The place that does the weekend courses with various trainers is:
I know people travel and stay on the campsite to attend courses
Oh yes please! I want to learn to be the best! :lol:Tractorgirl said:I'll check what technique Kim uses as a friend goes monthly with her pup. Kamal Fernandez used this approach too, as far as I can recall, he focuses on loads of static work for the first year mixed with enormously energetic play (also saw him at stonham - trying to pluck up courage to book a handler place for January with him with my minx!)
I have a few random notes from Kamal's last course - I can send them through to you - they might make an interesting read.
