Learn how to focus and perform under pressure in a trial or competition!



for Peak Performance

A Mental Management® Seminar

Why Mental Management?

Once basic skills have been developed for any dog sport (including Nose Work, Agility, Obedience, Rally, Freestyle, Herding, Musical Canine Freestyle, etc.), handlers and their dog need to learn to work exceptionally well together as a team for top performance.


In this seminar, we will explore what makes an excellent handler and how your efficiency as a handler will affect your dog’s performance in training and trialing. As a professional dog trainer, these same skills and techniques can be used in your dog training business or professional setting to deal with challenging situations, difficult clients, and group presentations. In addition, these skills are critical for any dog trainer that wants their students to excel in training!
