Having trained with Kayl for over ten years I am always amazed at her problem solving skills. She takes the time to get to know you and your dog and offers suggestions based your individual needs. I’m always amazed at her own willingness to learn. She never rests on her past results and is constantly seeking new ways to improve her teaching and handling skills. She is always striving for more out of herself and her students. Kayl’s classes are motivating, challenging and fun! She has a relaxed way of getting the best out of her students and their dogs.
Your knowledge & experience of dog training and handling is vast but it is your generosity and articulation of it with your students which is outstanding. Thank you Kayl McCann. That was a seminar to be grateful for.
I had the pleasure of taking a seminar with Kayl McCann and she instantly became one of my all time favorite presenters! She has an incredible sense of humor, the patience of a saint, the ability to explain things in a different manner for those of us that don’t “get it” on the first explanation (and did not make you feel stupid for not getting it!) and managed time the best I have ever seen! She was incredibly positive and her good energy was contagious. She is so humble and down to earth and is just a “regular person” despite her immense success in international competitions. I am very sad that she is so popular as a presenter as that means it is hard to get her to return!!
Cueing a fast dog is difficult in itself, being an older handler (lol) is also a challenge. Thank you for showing me how important it is to “show and go”, trust my dog and MOVE once I have the commitment. You always keep the seminar moving, giving equal time to all and manage to maintain a cheerful, attitude despite the long hours. Your professionalism is a credit to Deb and Marti:)
Sully thanks you and is looking forward to September Camp!
Kayl is a phenomenal instructor. I’ve done three seminars with her (so far) and in each seminar have felt both enormously challenged and enormously successful. Her observations are astute and her suggestions are specific and detailed — if you do what she says you see immediate improvement!! Talk about gratifying 🙂 In addition to to all of the other wonderful stuff that Kayl brings, she is funny and warm and genuinely thrilled for you when finally nail something you’d been having trouble with! Doesn’t get much better than that!
