ABOUT

In 2021, Susan welcomes back to Say Yes Summer Camp, Jessica Patterson and Justine Davenport.


Together the three will present three fun-filled, exciting days of handling challenges that set you up for success in the agility ring! We also have a Skills Day for less seasoned dogs or a 2nd seasoned dog who would benefit from a session of skills updating. It is the day before Summer Camp, to learn more about it  click here.

 

Camp Format: Camp will be comprised of 3 groups of 12. Six participants will work in the AM morning session, while the other six partners audit the session. The groups will switch working spots for the PM session in the afternoon. 

You will move daily to each of our exceptional instructors. This new formatting allows for concentrated work in small groups with well warmed up dogs and handlers / concentrated training/troubleshooting and a rest period for the dogs each day.


IMPORTANT: Due to the popularity of this camp we will be grouping the participants using a review of H360 training/trialling video.

In the "Video Link" section, please add a Vimeo/YouTube video link to your most recent training/trialling with your dog. The 2-3min video will highlight your current training/trialling skills.

Please also share where you are in your competition phases: Early competition, Advanced/Open or Excellent/Elite. This information will help our team balance all the working participant groups.


Camp Pre-Reqs: All handlers must have worked with Susan Garrett and/or Justine Davenport within the last year or have completed the first 3 levels of Handling360.


Camp Payments: New for 2021 we have a new and more convenient payment process. Full payments are required at the time of accepting your working spot. All pricing includes the HST (tax of 13%). Please also note our cancellation policy has been updated for 2021.


Waitlist: Our camps are very popular. If the camp is full at the time of your visit we strongly encourage you to put yourself on the “waiting list”. You will be notified as working spots become available.


Instructors: Susan Garrett, Jessica Patterson, Justine Davenport

Here is what student Carol Brown shared with us:

My first time at camp and I audited. The auditing experience exceeded my expectations! I was able to see all the dogs work and hear all the instructors without having to worry about managing my own dog. It's stress-free. I have a notebook filled with Gems and Drills and ideas that I’ll be working on at home. My top 3 take-aways:
1. GEM. If my dog doesn’t stop at my RZ, but runs by me, why should I expect her to collect and turn tight at an obstacle when I cue. (Ahh Recallers, you are the solution.)
2. Dog Training. I watched an amazing session where Susan transferred the value of food (for an adorable corgi) into agility. While I’ve heard this phrase “transfer of value” many times, I never really got it until now. The light-bulb went off.
3. ACTION. I heard the phrase “Reward Your Dog” from every instructor at camp. It’s so easy to get caught up in running the sequence. Or when I make a mistake to stop (but not reward my dog). Or I want feedback from the instructor immediately. This really hit home for me. My action plan going forward is to make sure I am rewarding my dog and giving her feedback immediately. And when I watch my training video, count how many times I did (or didn’t) reward and record.
