Stacking, Chutes, Faces and Turns
Darwin, 8 months, owned by Susan and Larry Reeve
Salsa, left, and Oso, 6 months, owned by Debbi Davis
Above, Judy Hall tickles Lucas' feet to get him to move them, moving toward training him to free-stack in the conformation ring. Below, Allie Gnade does similar work with Bella. The fact that Bella was in season provided a great training opportunity at the camp for owners who brought intact males.
Above, Michelle Grau takes one of the Grau's Berners through a back-feet exercise. Darwin, below, learned to "pray" in a back-chaining team challenge.
Kathy Berge teaches a Berner left and right, tossing treats in one direction or the other at the end of the chute.
