15 April 2014    10:00
 

For the first time, the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors Scheme's (KCAI) annual education event 'Try Out, Take In and Teach' will be open to all canine professionals and those considering a career with dogs.

The event, held in association with PRO PLAN, takes place on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th May 2014 at the Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire and offers seminars and comprehensive workshops covering everything from dog behaviour and training, competitive activities, nutrition and  anatomy.

Previously only open to KCAI members, this year's event gives the opportunity for all canine professionals to get advice and tips from experts in their chosen field. Topics at the education weekend will include 'Frustration Leading to Anger' and 'Aggression' will be explored by some of the KCAI Scheme's most well received speakers, Jane Hanshaw KCAI (CDA BehA) and Jackie Drakeford KCAI (CDAWLSAA) respectively, and for those who enjoy more practical displays: sessions such as clicker work with Angela White Fellow KCAI (CDAObABehAGCDSA), competitive and non-competitive agility with Steve Croxford KCAI (AgS) and Working Gundog Tests with Philippa Williams KCAI (CDAWGAFTA) are all on offer. 

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: "KCAI and PRO PLAN are working in partnership to deliver the highest standards of education, guidance and support to all those who work with dogs. KCAI's third education event looks set to be a  unique and varied programme of learning over the course of the weekend and for the very first year will be open to all canine professionals."

Day tickets are available for £65.00 for KCAI members and £80 for non-members and weekend tickets are available for £120 for KCAI members and £155 for non- members.
