Seminar
Saturday, January 20, 2024

This will be a big morning of all things German Shepherd Dog!  9am-12pm.  This seminar is for those who have an ardent love for the breed or who are leaning that direction 😉   Learn about the origin, history, the role of politics’ influence on the breed, major bloodlines, health and temperament, faults and successes of this amazing breed, as well as the GSDs current role/s in the world.  We’ll look at several changes that have taken place since the breed was created.  This is most likely the most comprehensive GSD seminar you’ll find anywhere!  This seminar is especially helpful for GSD breeders, enthusiasts, owners, and those who are considering purchasing/adopting a GSD.  Seminar led by our owner/founder Tim Miller, CMDT, who has been breeding/training GSDs for over 30 years and continues to be an avid sponge about the breed.  Cost to attend:  $39. Preregistration by Jan. 6 and prepayment are required.  No refunds for missed classes or tardiness. Preregister by emailing  info@conifercanine.

Seminar
Saturday, February 3, 2024

9am – 12pm.  In our dog breeding seminar, we will talk about different types of breeding, the many damages of inbreeding, helpful tips for successful mating, and a basic introduction into canine genetics.  We’ll dig into the designer dog fad, the need for good temperament in breeding pairs, DNA testing, and much, more more!  Past participants have stated that this seminar is an eye-opener and is a must for dog breeders.  This seminar does not include puppy care…that is another subject for another day.  Seminar is taught by Tim Miller, CMDT, who has bred dogs for over 30 years.  Cost to attend:  $49.
