TAILS & TRAILS Sunday, July 16, 2023. 8am to 10:30am

Hiking is a perfect way to enjoy the great outdoors and nature with your best friend. Dogs are great companions and watching them explore and revel in the sights, sounds and smells of nature is so rewarding.
But hiking can also be dangerous. This workshop will help prepare you for hikes, from what gear to take, how to be prepared and safety tips. We’ll also cover training for your dog, leash handling, come when called, working with distractions, trail etiquette and more! At the end we’ll apply what we learned on a short hike!

Safety will be covered by Marion County Search And Rescue member John Gelett!

Does your dog like to search for things? Do they like the great outdoors? Then you don’t want to miss this fun workshop!

Deer and elk shed their antlers every year. Dogs, with their powerful noses can be trained to search for these treasures in any terrain and bring them to their owner. Shed hunting has become a popular and profitable sport.

Many shed hunt for pleasure and some enjoy testing their dogs skills in competition. There are two organizations that offer shed hunt competition, North American Sport Dog Assoc (NASDA) and The United Kennel Club (AKC).

About the instructors: Tristin and Emily Delaplain bring separate experiences of shed hunting and dog training together to form a great team to help others teach their dogs how to shed hunt. Tristin has been hunting since childhood, and has successfully gone shed hunting for the last 8 years and is a UKC Elite Shed Dog Judge – Emily brings her dog training experience to the table with over 10 years in the field with specific interests in scent work and behavior modification. She has her CPDT-KA, is Fear Free Certified, holds an Associates degree in Business and Companion dog studies and is positive reinforcement based. After meeting Tristin, they combined their interests and together have trained their 2 most recent dogs to shed hunt in the wild and have also competed and placed in UKC Elite Shed Dog competitions. In 2023 they created the club Backcountry Antler Dogs located in Central Oregon to help people teach their dogs how to shed hunt as well as hold UKC Elite Shed Dog trials – the club is the first UKC Shed Dog Club in Oregon, and one of the very few clubs on the west coast.
