Trial Manager Seminar – March 11

DSC_1777The Ontario Region Schutzhund Association is pleased to present:

Trial Manager Seminar with Racine Hyatt-Auld.

Effective 2019, all GSSCC IPO trials must be run by an accredited Trial Manager. The name “Manager” has been chosen to replace the term “Secretary” to reflect the more significant responsibilities that the Trial Manager has for the success of the trial, and for the attention and accuracy that is due from the paperwork and procedures of the trial.

The trial is a serious process. Each dog must be authenticated, and the records accurately maintained, as we are creating a record for future generations that breeding decisions may well be based on.

Every trial will need a certified trial manager, and each club should have at least two trial managers, otherwise one person will be denied the advantage of ever trialing on their home field.

Tips for Pre-Trial Nerves

Pre-trial nerves never go away – not even in the top competitors. But your nerves affect your dog’s performance, as they will read your anxiety and wonder just what there is to be anxious about, and change their behaviour to match.

Here’s a video from a sports psychologist with a few tips about how to deal with your pre-competition jitters so that you can both have a better performance.

Space Available in Oct 21 Helper Seminar

Due to a cancellation at this coming Saturday’s Helper Certification – there is one space available for a helper looking to either certify or re-certify.

Please email rlucescu@hotmail.com

Open Training/Working Weekend

DSC_0076Niagara Hundesport and Wainfleet WDC would like to invite all GSSCC clubs from the Ontario region to a training working weekend where we will share the club grounds to allow members to take advantage of the use of different fields, helpers etc.

The date is September 30th at WWDC and October 1st at Niagara Hundesport. The two clubs are located 15 mins from each other. Lunch and drinks will be provided for a small fee at the field, as well as we would like to encourage helpers from the Region to attend and work different dogs. Please if you plan on coming out with a dog, let Jennifer and/or Renee Lucescu know so they have an idea of how many will attend, and can plan for food, as well as plan and coordinate the field time for everyone.

Hope to see everyone there!

GSSCC 2017 National Helper Tryout for Ontario Region complete!

–from Anthony Hartelaub
Thank you to all who came out to support the National Helper Tryout for the Ontario Region. Great hosting of the event by the Scarborough Select German Shepherd Schutzhund Club, with free food for all. A huge thank you to the handlers who brought dogs for practice, certification and tryout: Carol Cologna Virtanen, Trish Foley, Ian Robson, John Marhan, Pim Vanderveen.
We are lucky in this region to have these 2 young talented helpers that tried out: Brent Alvey and Chad Bigras They did great on the new physical tests, and it was not easy..
Here are the videos of the tryout, enjoy.

Guidelines for Hosting the Regional Championship Trial and Show

DSC_1943

The region has developed set of guidelines to help clubs with planning and hosting the Ontario Regional Championship Trial and Show. This is an annual event that is the highlight of the competitive season, short of the National Championship. Both the organizers and the competitors are held to a higher standard than at a club trial, and more is at stake. For some competitors, doing well here is necessary to their plans to try out for the World Team.

Guidelines for Hosting the Regional Trial and Show

Of course, clubs that need clarification or help can contact the board of directors.
