Sunday, April 6

Download Flyer/Registration Form

The art and sport of Canine Freestyle is coming to your neighborhood with an exciting 2-in-1 workshop with Canine Freestyle Coach Judy Gamet. Fine tune your body language and flow of movement with your dog as a team by practicing Canine Freestyle routines which enhance any dog sport!

• The Introduction to Canine Freestyle workshop teaches you basic content and vocabulary. Much like learning the signs in rally obedience or the obstacles in agility, you need to understand the content of the sport and develop your handling skills in order to become proficient. This workshop takes you through a warm up routine, stretches, three progressively harder freestyle routines, and a cool down massage all set to music! Information about competition is also included in this workshop. AT 12 NOON

The Next Step – Creating Your Routine is a workshop for experienced handlers or those who have completed the Introduction to Canine Freestyle. This workshop teaches you concepts of selecting music for your dog, how to handle your dog to its best advantage, and how to create movement phrases with music. This workshop takes a deeper look into the competitive sport of canine freestyle. AT 3:00 p.m.

Judy Gamet, BS in Dance Education, has been training rottweillers for the past 17 years. A competitor in conformation, tracking, Schutzhund, traditional obedience, and rally obedience, Judy is West Coast representative of the Canine Freestyle Federation, created Dogs Can Dance, and has been coaching competition teams for the past 6 years. For more information, visit:

The workshop fee is $75 for a working spot and $35 to audit (Smart Members $60/$28 as the standard club 20% discount). Fee includes afternoon munchies and drinks For questions, contact Carol Maehr, or 831-373-3752.

Have you ever dreamed of having a consistent running contact on the A-Frame that your friends will covet?
