Agenda is now full.

After a successful fully booked seminar we will be organising another seminar.

Introduction to IPO

Dates to be confirmed but we expect around 4 weeks after the world championships please register your interest to avoid disappointment as the last event was fully booked within 48hrs.

We will be organising a 2 day Seminar/Workshop with the top Dutch trainers & IPO world championships competitors Paulus Bosman & Marielle van der Kooij who have competed many times at the world championships and compete consistently at National & World championship level with countless IPO titles between them, Paul is also a top IPO & KNPV helper.

Marielle Van Der Kooij with Chief van het Eldenseveld

The disciplines will be split into 2 days a 3rd day may be available for helper training this 3rd day will be confirmed nearer the time so for now we are only taking reservations for the 2 days.

1st day is IPO which will be obedience in the morning with Marielle & protection in the afternoon with helpers Paul and several other UK National helpers the cost is £70 with 1 dog, if you have young pups you can do several sessions of obedience with Marielle if not wanting to do the protection work, or just obedience with your adult dogs if you prefer as not everyone wants to do the bitework.

2nd Day will IPO protection work with Paul on suits & sleeves depending on what the handler wants to work on again its £70 with 1 dog on this day Marielle will also help handlers who just want to concentrate on his or her obedience while the other work is going on , so you can also do three days of obedience if thats what you prefer to work on if a 3rd day becomes available.

If a 3rd day is available it will be for Helper training based on techniques for all levels from beginners up to advanced & will be split into 2 groups you will need to bring your own dogs to work on £70 for the day maximum of 8 helpers.

Spectators £35

We will be running this after the guys have finished  competing at the world championships so it will likely be held the last weekend in May , Location will be in Kent parking is available and if weather permits there will be a BBQ there will also be tea & coffee please bring your own lunches.

Full Payment to be made when making the reservation no exceptions.
