Students Begged! Students Pleaded! Jeannine Listened!

Jeannine Rash Small Dog Seminar  September 29-30, 2018 

Jeannine Rash, multi-OTCH trainer and 2017 AKC Classic Winner, Novice level, is offering her small dog obedience workshop this year. This isn’t a yearly offering so don’t miss your chance.

Many trainers will tell you they can train small dogs however Jeannine trains small dogs every day. She is currently working on her 6th OTCH, all with small dogs. Small dogs are her expertise and her passion. She also has experience with rescues.

In December 2017, Jeannine won the AKC Classic at the Novice level. She and Josie were the only small dog team left standing at any level. She has the experience and the expertise to help you reach your goals.

Jeannine will share expert experience and knowledge to start training you, your puppy or retraining your adult dog.  She is a master at explaining tricks of the trade to perfect heeling and other exercises for your advanced dog. Plus she will help with specific problems, while training for speed, animation and precision. This seminar is not a pet-obedience class, rather an intense competition obedience experience. Training areas will include input from the student pre-work paperwork.

Papillonia Dog Training Academy (PDTA) is a fully matted climate-controlled facility with a built-in sound system, ample parking and large indoor bathrooms. Jeannine started this facility to be a friendly environment where handlers and dogs can relax and feel safe to ask questions and learn.
