I highly recommend Petra's seminars.
Over the weekend, I attended the Petra Ford seminar at Cleveland All Breed Training Club. Like often happens during good weather seasons in Ohio, I had many choices of things to do and ended up splitting my weekend and only attended the seminar on Saturday. The reason I only attended on Saturday is because, with an OM1 and UDX and whining in the ring, I have reached the conclusion that we have achieved all we are going to achieve in Obedience. While that may still be true, I must say that I am so glad I spent a day learning from Petra. Her insights on how dogs learn and how to read and manage their emotional or drive state was fascinating! After talking with her, I drove home inspired and with some ideas. I am now challenged to see if I can figure out how to get my dog through an Obedience class in a happy emotional state with no whining. Time will tell if we ever get back in the ring or not. If you are interested in Obedience, and ever have the opportunity to attend one of her seminars, I highly recommend it. Thank you, Petra!
