Aivo's tracking and protection seminar in New Zealand
In the middle of our cold winter I had a great chance to enjoy summer and train dogs in New Zealand. I was invited by New Zealand United Schutzhund Club. The seminar was very well organized and overall a great success. It was lovely to see that all participants were eager to learn and highly motivated. Most of the dogs showed drive levels and nervous system quality that allows their handlers to set higher aims in training and also to achieve them. As a result of all these supporting factors it was possible to achieve remarkable progress during the seminar. Most of the dogs were belgian shepherd malinois's, also couple of rottweilers, dobermann, dutch and german shepherds. This trip was certainly great and memorable experience for me.

From speeding and over-shooting corners to tracking like this on day 4 of our training, to "passing" IPO 1 track on day 7. Can't thank you enough Aivo for the valuable tips! We are inspired to keep on tracking Aivo style!
i had some guys form germany work demon and ash today. Its amazing to see the difference in the dogs after 6 days working with Aivo, all 3 guys noticed a huge improvement in demon, infact they thought i swopped dogs, mind you i thought the same LOL. Ash was clean and outed perfectly grips were amazingly better, Demon worked extremely well again, Then we (and i say we loosely) did a track for ash, the comments wow dog tracked nicely b4 what have you done?? dog was extremely careful, precise, lovely corners perfect articles, i said LOL its the Aivo way of tracking great method, the perfect method, and cant thank Aivo enough for sorting the issues out there and also in the bite work, now i think roll on the nationals
Tracking at the Aivo Seminar!!! Was fantastic, we learned so much!!!
Tracking and C work. Fantastic. Incredible devotion and expertise from Aivo. Sad loss for those that could make it but have not. What an opportunity to share some time with Aivo during his holiday in NZ.
For the ones who didn't come they will never know what a opportunity they lost.
