Comments:K9 DanceSport Education and Resources is a unique, and specific group. Due to our own concerns with efficient, detailed, and thorough training available readily everywhere, we determined through surveys, that the need for training in order to increase the availability of quality teachers, to teach the fast growing world of Canine Freestyle, is epidemic! Each individual on this committee, is driven by a desire to share the vision of freestyle! Each workshop, will have new committee members, as it was decided in the beginning, that the freestyle world will benefit from a diverse, and dedicated team of freestylers, of all levels, who understand the quest for information!
The level of experience of those responding to the survey, indicated that many teachers feel inadequate, in teaching skills, while being competent in freestyle skills. There is a huge demand for classes, and not enough teachers, in many areas, to give those classes.
K9DanceSport Education and Resources was born! The mission, to provide quality training, worldwide, through combinations of presenters, and venues, has begun! The inaugural workshop, in Phoenix, Arizona, May 6 & 7 is rapidly approaching! There are still a few openings for the workshop. www.k9dancesport.org Any dog person, who has an interest canine freestyle, will benefit from this presentation! This is the first, the one that sets the standard! The future of this group, will be additional workshops, with various presenters, and numbers of presenters, in various locations. We aspire to do an International Workshop, in South Africa, and in Australia! Each workshop will build on the previous one, so the information learned at this first one, may be the difference to understanding those that come after it! The foundation workshop will be instrumental in allowing teachers to get o the fast lane to freestyle classes! The freestyle organizations will benefit from the shear numbers of freestylers, enabled by t
