The Heartland Chapter is sponsoring a handlers Clinic to be held in Thurman, IA., April 19 and 20th. More information about handlers clinics can be found at NAVHDA.org. If you are going to run in a NAVHDA test, or have run, they are a great help in understanding what is being looked for. Unlike the AKC seminars for judges you actually go out in the field and judge dogs (2 on sat and 2 on sun) of all levels, so it is more 'hands on'. A handlers clinic is also the first step if you want to get into the apprenctice program. You can contact me for more details or entry. Participants are limited to 20 so if you are thinking about it contact me early.
