Online course: Holding an Area – w/o personal feedback


SKU: online-course-holding-an-area-2020-wo Categories: , ,


In this course, we will immerse ourselves in the learning and further development of holding an area. The course consists of nine lessons that you can work through at your own pace. Some lessons you may need to come back to several times; while with others you may be able to skip completely, as they may not be necessary for your type of training (e.g. training a retriever or training a spaniel).

The course is based on the same training mindset as the book Retrieving for All Occasions. It is not necessary that you have the book to take this course; although we strongly recommend it as it contains lots of helpful background information as well as an entire chapter on casting and blind retrieves.

Prior knowledge

No prior knowledge is needed, but it’s great if you’re familiar with our training methods, which are positive and reward based. Learn more by reading our blog or our book Retrieving for All Occasions.
