Obedience Seminar with Kristin Brooks Jones

ALL SKILLS AND LEVELS WELCOMED. BRING YOUR DOG.

• The use of markers and rewards • Creating and sustaining engagement • Obedience games •

Kristin Brooks Jones has been training and showing German Shepherd Dogs in AKC Obedience since 2003. She competes in Obedience, Tracking, Agility and IPO. Kristin and Heka (who passed away in July 2018), earned 4 GSDCA Victrix Awards: the 2014, 2016, and 2017 GSDCA Obedience Victrix and the 2017 Agility Victrix, tying the record. At the AKC National All Breed Championship, they finished in the Top 20 the past 2 years. They have even earned an elusive perfect 200 score!  Kristin and Heka have earned their OTCH, MACH2 and TDX along with many other titles. Kristin believes that success in any venue begins with a strong relationship between the handler and the dog. In this seminar, Kristin will focus on games that enhance the engagement between dog and handler and that promote better, more precise heeling, fronts and finishes – the foundation of all obedience.
