2018 - Foundations of the Field Seminar - Wrap Up Report
On Saturday, March 3 we kicked off the 2018 training season.
This seminar was an introduction to the Foundation Level of the Huntsmith Silent Command System (www.huntsmith.com). GSPCI President, Perry Dlugie led the workshop. Perry has been training in the Huntsmith Mentoring Program and worked alongside pro trainers Rick Smith and Sonny Piekarz in learning the Huntsmith training system.
We started at 9:00 a.m. in the East Grounds Clubhouse with a classroom full of eager members. Perry introduced the Foundations of the Huntsmith Silent Command System, basic equipment, training concepts, testing programs and events. After a short break for lunch we went outside with our dogs and put to use the basic foundation concepts learned. Everyone had an opportunity to get some hands on time with the use of Wonder lead, Check chord and Whoa Post drills.
GSPCI has worked with Dogs Unlimited to create a training package geared towards the Huntsmith system. If you are interested, We encourage you to order yours at - http://www.dogsunlimited.com/i/4648/gspci-training-package.htm, or search GSPCI Training Kit on their website.
