Rocking Retrieve Filmed Event and Workshop

21 June @ 9:30 am4:30 pm


How is your dog’s retrieve? Is it more like a game of catch-me-if-you-can as your dog gleefully runs around and plays keepaway with their retrieve item? Or is your retrieve a bit unpredictable? Sometimes great, sometimes not so great!

Having a Rocking Retrieve is a really powerful tool for so many reasons. For agility it saves you time between turns; for gundog and flyball it is crucial!

Perhaps you just want to have some fun with your dog and use your retrieve as part of your games sessions and to boost your reinforcement options.

This film day with Tom and Lauren is designed to help you build a truly Rocking Retrieve where your dog will learn:

  • Desire for a retrieve item
  • Marking a retrieve item
  • Accurate pick up and hold
  • A cued release of an object
  • To go straight out and come straight back 
  • Appropriate control so they can be sent to collect a retrieve item when cued

There is so much to be covered on this day!  

This day will be filmed, and you will be required to sign an electronic film waiver the week before the workshop.

Call the office to discuss your needs or book right now on the website!

Please bring a packed lunch/snacks and hot/cold drinks for the day.

Member £150
Non-member £165

We are looking forward to having you train with us! To help us ensure you have the best possible training experience, please arrive at the start time specified for this event. Devon Dogs is a Centre of Excellence training facility and we want to ensure all training change overs are smooth and easy.

We understand it is difficult to estimate arrival times and we know you will have planned for the unexpected in your journey! Should you arrive a little early, we recommend stopping at the Shell Services just off of the A30, only half a mile away from us. There is a Little Waitrose, Greggs, Subway and Burger King with tea/coffee and lots of healthy (or not so healthy!) snacks and prepared meals as well as toilet facilities. If you wish to go for a short walk, you can access the Granite Way in Sourton.

To get the best out of your training with us, please review this *awesome link* that includes what to bring for training, what you need if you are training in Bowerland Arena plus some helpful tips.

Please be aware that you may experience difficulties making a payment if you are using a mobile device.
