June Youth Training Seminar

Shadow Oak Plantation
Nashville
Region 16
Youth Field Trial Alliance presents a hands-on training seminar by some of the region’s most successful field trial trainer/handlers — Judd Carlton, Jamie Daniels, Jason Loper and Chris Peek. No experience level is necessary (just a love of bird dogs!) and no dog or horse is required. The morning will consist of demonstrations followed by hands-on practice by each youth handler. Topics will include how to approach a dog on point, how to flush birds properly, when and how to shoot and handler conduct in backing situations. Lunch at the beautiful Shadow Oak Plantation lodge will be followed by Trainer/Handler Advice and a Question and Answer period.

The Seminar and Lunch are free of charge but limited to 20 youth handlers so everyone gets an opportunity to practice the morning’s demonstration. Please register to reserve your young handlers spot and give us their t-shirt size by May 14. Custom Seminar t-shirts for each participant generously donated by Purina ProPlan!

The event is full. If you’d like to sponsor this event by offsetting our costs of lunch and quail, please contact Chris at 207-615-2740 or email
