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."
