Description

Have you always wanted to attend the Michael Ellis School but couldn’t make it out to California? Have you wondered what it would be like to be a student at Michael’s school? December 2019, you will have your chance to try out the MES experience with Leerburg in northwest Wisconsin! The MES will be going on the road and joining forces with Leerburg for an information packed, condensed 3 day event that will mirror the curriculum and teaching format of Michael’s classes at his school in Santa Rosa, CA. This will not be a typical seminar, but an intense compressed learning experience that covers one topic each day.

  • Day 1: Relationship Engagement and Communication
  • Day 2: How to build and use motivation
  • Day 3: Proofing and Finishing Work

We will need 8-10 dogs & handlers for each of the 3 days to work with Michael on specific skills & problems that will fit the topic being presented. These openings will be filled via a screening/audition process and will only be offered to participants who are already enrolled in the event. We will be sending out the forms and giving instructions for submission later this summer, well in advance of the event. If you & your dog are selected there will be an additional fee to work with Michael. More details coming soon!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: I was wondering if you could provide some more information about the Michael Ellis On the Road event that is being held at Leerburg in December. How does this program compare to the various courses offered at the Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers? Is there a certification offered after completion of this event? Does the format of the class include both lecture and hands on work with dogs?

A: This is a condensed version of some of the classes at Michael's school. One day will be engagement & communication, the next day will be Motivation and how to use it in your training and the 3rd day will be Finishing work, proofing, weaning off of rewards and introducing corrections. There is no certification offered as this is just a sampling of the more popular classes and it's only a 3-day event. We will be having a meet & greet social at Leerburg the evening before the event as well as give aways and silent auctions throughout the entire 3 days.

There will be lecture and dog work. The dog & handler teams that will be working with Michael will be pre-selected via a questionnaire and video audition and will be selected for their relevance to the topic of the day. More details will be coming on that as we get through the summer. The dog/handler teams that are selected to work with Michael must already be registered for the event to be considered and will pay an additional fee for the working spot. I believe we will be selecting 10 dog/handler teams each day (30 total) We are expecting a great time and a big turnout.
