Registration Process

Workshop Labs are made up of small, intimate groups of no more than 20 participants.  Admittance is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Most Workshop Labs have 1 dog volunteer for every 3-4 participants to maximize time spent practicing newly-learned skills.  

The STAAR Rating System allows you to select the course(s) that fit best with your skill level and knowledge:

★         Basic Course: Designed for participants who desire a basic understanding or knowledge of the topic or skills.

              Participants will find the course basic/introductory.

★★     Intermediate Course: Participants assume a solid foundation and understanding of the topic and skills, and desire more advanced training. 

             Participants will find this course moderately challenging. 

★★★ Challenging Course: Presentation includes advanced skills and cutting-edge techniques that assume a thorough

               understanding of the topic and consistency in ability to apply foundational skills and clinical reasoning. 

               Prerequisites may apply.
