WGSDPA TRAINING HELPER PROGRAM
The Training Helper Division of the THA seeks to disseminate basic awareness of fundamentals and fundamental concepts to ensure the safety of all and proper and humane development of the canine partner’s progress. We understand that trainers have diverse methodologies in re protection but surely, the proper holding of the leash; the utilization of a tie out and harness are fundamentals that should be coterminous with any program, no matter how divergent the theories utilized for IGP 3, 100 attainment.
The Helper Academy (“THA”) was established to document, archive and facilitate the dissemination of broad information regarding Phase C to ensure that the helper and handler are aware of the judge’s expectations and requirements in this arguably most important phase (when there is a tie, the higher protection score determines first place).
The WGSDPA will participate in the helper academy to develop both trial and training helpers for the sport of IGP.
