Edgar Scherkl Seminar

This weekend Akela and me traveled to Santiago to a 3 day seminar by Edgar Scherkl. It was a great, great seminar, probably one of the best I've been. I really liked his style of training and felt that was how said was in tune with what I'm already doing. Probably for those who went without dog the seminar may be a bit slow, because Edgar dedicates a lot of time to each dog and then gives long explanations, but for those who took ours it was super personalized.

This was also Akela's "presentation in society" and I think we caused a very good impression. Akela gave 110% of himself and was always focused on the job. Even when Edgar stopped to explain something his eyes were always glued on me and Scherkl used us as an example of motivation and focus. While older and already titled dogs where worked on heeling and basic positions, Edgar just gave me some advice to control his pushiness and basically told us to keep working like we were and to wait for maturity. We then worked with the dumbbell.

In protection he works mainly on aggression and put lots of pressure on the dogs, but Akela handled it fine for his age. I think "I" am the one who needs to learn to enjoy more the fight, LOL.

Some pictures... well, lots of them...

Lets say he "is" maturing, LOL, just look at the picture where he is sitting and you'll see what a baby face he still has.

Thanks!

Thanks everybody, if you can go to one of his seminar... do it!

I'll indulge in some bragging because my self esteem is over the roof I put a pic on my facebook profile and a trainer from Argentina, who barely knows me, commented that Scherkl loved my work. I'm famous beyond borders and I didn't know!
