Member Education Scheme
For some time now, members of Dogs Queensland have been asking for a learning program to assist new members with an introduction to the essentials of owning, breeding and showing dogs.
Additionally, this course is designed to assist existing members to keep up to date with the latest information on Canine Movement, Husbandry, Anatomy, First Aid, Bonding, Genetics and how to achieve successful Show ring outcomes.
This 10 module course has been designed to allow the participants to study at their own pace, with each module conducted monthly. There are open book assessments and Certificates of Completion for each module. For those considering a future in Judging, Modules 2, 7 & 9 are prerequisites for the Judges Training Scheme.
If the entire course is not suitable, modules can be completed individually at a cost of $10 per module. For the full 10 modules however, there is a significant saving of 25% if the entire course is undertaken.
Enrolment is essential. Please CLICK HERE to read the course overview. There is a registration form included on the second page.
Register your interest now - the first 2 Modules close on 9 April 2015.
