March 2012 we spent time abroad learning more about all things K9 with a college cruise and attending Prestigious Dog shows in California.
We are also proud to announce that we owners of www.dogshowjudges.com were a major sponsor of the 2012 College Cruise.
We successfully completed and graduated from the K9 College Cruise. This was a wonderful time in and out of class with the worlds best in the K9 world.
Seminars were held throughout the day during our days at sea and a few evenings were also filled with seminars, symposiums and workshops.
The Seminars that we attended were as we cruised around the Caribbean were:
Tricks of the Trade
K9 Structure in Action
Dr. Deborah Greco
Gut Sea: Gastrointestinal Update for the Breeder
Gland Sea*: Endocrinology Update for the Breeder
Dr. Robert Van Hutchison
Dr. Debbie Gross Saunders
Strengthening & Conditioning the K9 Athlete
Dr. Ron Schultz
Immunology: Everything you need to know about Vaccines
Patricia Craige Trotter
The Gene Scene
Handle It Yourself! ~ Tips & Techniques for Traumaless Dog Showing
The seminar schedule on-board the K9 College Cruise was rigorous and intense. This was an amazing time with not only attending the seminars but spending time with the entire faculty on board the ship. The "downtime" with the presenters was as valuable as the presenations themselves.
