1. Coaching the Canine Athlete Seminars
Coaching the Canine Athlete© seminars provide information on how the canine body works, and what you can do to improve performance and keep your dog healthy and injury-free. Seminars can be geared towards those interested in any or all performance events – it’s your choice! The seminars are highly interactive and provide ample opportunity for attendees and their dogs to participate in structure and gait analysis, lameness evaluation, conditioning exercises and jump training, alternating lecture time with working activities. There is abundant opportunity to ask questions.
Reviews from Seminar Participants
Thank you Chris for sharing your knowledge with us, answering all our questions, and doing it with such good humour.

This is my third time attending one of [Chris Zink's] presentations in the past nine years and each one has been better than the previous. I appreciate that as the sport [of agility] is evolving, so is Chris and her thinking which translates to better knowledge and understanding being passed along to us - how lucky we are!
--- Lorraine L., Winnipeg, MB
It was absolutely the most fantastic seminar I've ever been to (and I've just about seen 'em all!). If you are competing yourself or teaching students who plan to compete or train their dogs for any activity beyond couch potato, get to this seminar!
--- Kathy S, OH
I can't recommend this seminar highly enough. To be fair to our dogs, we need to know and understand their make-up before making any demands. I've been to many seminars, and this is one that I'd recommend as a must to anybody who competes with his/her dogs; be it obedience, agility, conformation, field etc. The seminar was very well structured, informative, interactive and well presented. Chris is an excellent speaker!

Chris was very approachable for questions and she sincerely cares.
--- Chris C, ON
I learned so much valuable information that hopefully can help me to help my companions to not only do the performance events they love and enjoy, but to be healthy (mentally, spiritually, and physically) while doing them. [Chris is] a very talented speaker and [her] touches of comedy and sentimentalism add a specialness that holds the attendees' attentions.
