Monique Plinck Seminar

June 22 - June 23

SUMMER ’24 SEMINAR WITH Monique Plinck

Shelburne Field House, Shelburne VT 6/22/24 & 6/23/24

Seminar Format: Two Four Hour Workshops Per Day, Five Working Teams Per Sessions, Unlimited Auditors

Monique brings a unique teaching style that incorporates her strong sense of humor with over 20 years of experience as a coach and competitor in the agility world. Her students love her analogies and her real life experiences that she interweaves with her expert dog training. She firmly believes that training must be fun!Monique’s extensive knowledge of the sport is unparalleled, having competed in 6 different jump heights with a variety of breeds in 4 separate venues. She has enjoyed competing at the highest international level, representing the USA on 8 different world teams with 2 different dogs, yet she is easily able to identify with competitors at all levels.Monique’s multiple orthopedic procedures have given her a great appreciation for the skills needed to be successful, regardless of the limitations of the handler or the aspirations of the team she is guiding. Her own dogs must possess extremely strong independent skills to combat her reduced mobility. Monique loves being a part of the success of the teams she coaches and ensures they set out with brilliantly trained skills as well as the confidence to rely on them. She modifies her instruction to benefit the individuality of each team, and her goal is to create a handler who can confidently analyze a course, to choose and execute their best handling options to the strengths of their team.Monique is always at the forefront of the rapid evolution of the sport of agility and enjoys bringing new skills and sharing the latest challenges with her students. Monique was selected to be a OneMind Dogs Assistant coach, and her understanding of that methodology perfectly complements and strengthens her own long developed style. Never satisfied to sit still, she constantly continues to advance her training and progress her handling to suit the needs of the current day. Monique Plinck is the owner of Criterion Agility.Working Spots: One four hour session $200. As always, auditing is free for NOMAD members. $50 for the weekend for non-members.
