Saturday, February 22, 2014 9:00 AM Hunting Demonstration by Robingun Kennels
Pam Robinson, owner of Robingun Kennels in Lincoln, NE, has a passion for bird hunting and for their Small Munsterlanders. Pam will talk to you about the versatility of the breed not only as a hunting dogs but as a therapy dogs. She will offer her expertise and she will give you tips on how to start out right away with puppy/dog training that can be done in the home or the yard. She will use her own Small Munsterlanders to demonstrate and time will be allotted to answer questions about dog training as well as she will offer tips for working through problems with your own hunting dog. Her method of training hunting dogs is to create positive learning situations to build drive and hunting skills. She will demonstrate how obedience is taught in the yard and through daily activities and planned sessions at the same time the hunting dog is gaining confidence in the field. Obedience is transitioned to the field and a balanced well-trained hunting dog is the result that can also be an outstanding therapy dog. Pam frequently works with puppy owners and adult dog handlers so they bond with their hunting dogs and a team situation is created.
