About The Event
sWhether you are a bitework-curious newcomer wanting to acquire more knowledge of concepts and techniques, or are a seasoned competitor who wants to enhance your score and sharpen your skills, this is an opportunity to explore how to most effectively reach your goals..
Our safe training atmosphere, specifically designed for women, will allow attendees and instructors to deep dive into exploring the fundamentals of grip development, engagement, outing, reading a dog, envisioning and creating personal development plans, and most of all, practice the mechanical skills of catching and working a dog.
During this fun and focused weekend, you will gain confidence while deepening your understanding of fundamental concepts and the nuanced details of helper work and decoy skills. We are committed to meeting students at their level and providing ample opportunity for individualized instruction and advancement.
Training and competing in protection sports can be expensive. Make this the time you develop your ability to work your personal dogs on your own... or your clubs' dogs! We aim to give each attendee the skills and knowledge to begin or accelerate their journey in bitesports. If you want to gain insight into protection and helper/decoy work, in a safe and empowering environment, this is where you want to be!
