IS THIS A DOG AGILITY CAMP? YOU BET!!
"There is an emphasis on the handler's work and the handler's fitness, but there will be a dog option available whenever there is a no-dogs option such as yoga for agility, aerobics moves for agility, etc. One morning class, Choreography I, features a half-hour without dogs to learn two or three good handler moves. We teach them dance style. Then, that afternoon there is Choreography II class, an hour long, with dogs and obstacles to practice those same moves of the day in our agility context. Next day, a new set of choreography and another chance to work the moves without dogs in the a.m., then with dogs in the afternoon.
So, yes, this is certainly a dog camp. But there will be non-dog classes offered every day as well. We will offer a dog agility activity throughout the day, so that anyone not wanting to do the handler fitness activities at any given time may choose to be doing agility directly."

An explanation of the $50 surcharge for each additional dog...
At WMA camps, we don't believe in closet dogs! Every dog, working or "non working", is part of the group and welcome to enjoy the camp. You may certainly switch dogs between sessions (not within sessions, please), and choose which dog to work in which session.
We keep these camps small, and we turn down a lot of money to do so! I think you'll appreciate that we don't let a small canine working group accidentally become a large canine social unit. Camps here afford you as much work as you want without being crowded. The result is low stress for people and dogs.
No individual will be allowed to participate without a SIGNED WAIVER (located on your camp's registration form).
Please send your dog's Veterinary Information Form (for EACH dog you are bringing), signed by your veterinarian, with your balance of payment. Download (Acrobat PDF file) :
Balance of payment is due 1 month prior to the beginning of your camp.
Due date is listed on your Camp Registration Form.
Your spot in a camp / seminar will be reserved upon receipt of your non-refundable $150 deposit. Balance is DUE 1 month prior to the beginning of your camp.

Refunds: If you find you will be unable to attend a camp that you've signed up for, WMA will refund the amount paid to date LESS $150
