Did you miss out?

On May 20 & 21 your SW Region sponsored a Training Seminar on Tracking with John Riboni


The region would like to thank both John Riboni for a fantastic seminar & the San Diego Schutzhund club for hosting and securing tracking fields. John’s accomplishments in sport, K9 Law Enforcement, Personal Protection training and coaching are proven and documented (just do a simple google search). John covered his method in depth over two days of lecture and hands on, one on one coaching. Many of the participants commented throughout the weekend on how they picked up new tools for their training, new insights on the behavior they witnessed in the dogs over the weekend and how they felt re-invigorated in their training.

The other pieces of a successful seminar are the small details in venue, communication of a time schedule, tables, chairs, food and shade. San Diego Schutzhund club really put forth a successful effort. On lookers could see the synergy within the club and even commented on how happy the club appeared to manage to the event. The club worked together to ensure the venue was ready, food and snacks where available to participants and everyone was happy to apart of a great event.

If you missed this event, you really missed something special!!!
