Session Descriptions


By popular request we’ve added a session focused on creating an artistic rendition of your favorite breed that “lights up” your life!  Participants in this workshop will complete an item that will enhance their home/office and yet be small enough to fit in your vehicle! Faculty:  Melissa Lambrecht


Join Kathleen, our Scottie Masseuse extraordinaire, as she demonstrates specific massage techniques to use with your dog to provide pleasure, reduce stress and discomfort and to strengthen your bond.  This session is a hands on and you will be provided with an opportunity to do some hands on practice either on a blanket or a table covered with a blanket for those unable to get up from ground level.  Faculty: Kathleen Folz is well known for her knowledge of holistic canine health and has been a long time volunteer with Greyhound rescue and DCSR.


Join fellow Scottie owners for a taste of Lure Coursing in a casual and friendly environment. We’ll be using the Swift Paws home version of their professional coursing machine.  Maximum course length is planned at 200 feet. Sit back and enjoy while your best friend gets dog-tired with a two-minute game of capture the bunny!  Faculty:  Pam Straus is the Rally’s champion of performance events! She is a Scottish Terrier breeder, a mentor to new breeders and a member of the Sheboygan Dog Training Club


Hand-Strip vs Clip Grooming will feature a discussion of the methods, tools used and a demonstration  with 1:1 mentoring.   Attendees are requested to bring their grooming tools they use at home and will receive personal mentoring from experienced exhibitors.  Faculty: Jessica L. Moore is an International Certified Master Groomer & Owner of Show Stoppers Pet Styling in Waukegan, IL.   In addition to her grooming business, competing in grooming shows and teaching, she also shows her AKC Standard Poodles.


There is no end to our thirst for learning all we can about the Scottish Terrier! Join returning guest and former DCSR Board member, Yvette Rhodes as she engages us with lots of trivia that may stump our audience! Prizes will be awarded!   Faculty:Yvette Rhodes, Scottie Mom Extraordinaire/Former DCSR Board Member, Louisville, KY

BUILDING A SOLID RECALL: Getting Your Scottie to Come!

If your dog comes to you only when they want to—you’ll want to attend this session!  Jody Hergert-Andresen will teach you how to achieve your Scottie coming without the bribe of a treat!


Ever wonder how on earth you’ll ever get your Angus or Aggie to relax when you leave them?

Leave it to Jody Hergert-Andresen to help you master some tricks to improve your situation at home!

THE BARK STOPS HERE  Let me count the various reasons why dogs bark! Join Jody as she wraps up the day discussing training protocols around barking and realistic and unrealistic approaches to implement in your home setting.


Puppies are sweet but they don’t come with warning labels about their SHARK teeth! Using their mouths is the only way they know how to get their needs met until a plan is in place to expand their teachable moments! Learn how both of you will deserve this crucial timeframe in their development and time of bonding from Jody Hergert-Andresen.   We guarantee that this will increase your ability to enjoy this period and not just wish it away!

Faculty: Jody Hergert-Andresen is certified as a Dog Behavior Consultant through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and is a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. She works with shelters, rescue groups and private clients- assessing dogs, designing treatment plans for behavior issues and training staff and volunteers.

ADVANCES in Bladder Cancer Research

Since the Rally began in 2001 we have seen many advances made in bladder cancer research. Exactly how does this translate into real life for our dogs?  Join for an update of what the excitement is all about!  Faculty: Claire Wiley DVM, is an internal medicine veterinarian who works closely with Dr Matthew Breen at the Breen Lab Urothelial Clinical Trials Group at NC State University.


For twenty years the pursuit of health issues has been the impetus for the Door County Scottie Rally and a major reason why we have consistently donated a portion of our annual proceeds to the STCA Health Trust Fund.  Join us to learn how our donations have helped our breed and about the future priorities of the HTF.   Faculty: Marcia Dawson, DVM Chairperson STCA HTF


We ask for your patience with a new system of scheduling your optional events that require appointment time.  Beginning late March registrants who have paid for the optional events below will receive an email so that you can schedule your own appointments.

SCOTTIE MASSAGE: Even Superheroes Need Relaxation! (limited availability)

Kathleen Folz graciously returns to DCSR for another year with her 2nd favorite breed. She is intuitively aware  of what a fur kid needs since  she is a canine mom herself! Kathleen continues to be a canine advocate who is  passionate about Greyhound Rescue, knowledgeable about holistic veterinary care and has a heart of gold and magical fingers! Session Fee is $15/dog

TRAINING CONSULT  (limited availability on Friday and Saturday)

Join Jody Hergert‐Andresen for a focused 25 minute session on any topic of interest or concern. Jody is a tireless advocate of pet owners being positive, consistent, and being in a partnership with a focus on reinforcing desirable behaviors rather than correcting undesirable behaviors. Session fee is $35


Gale Ritchey, artist, intuitive and pet psychic returns to provide counseling for you and your fur kid(s)as they express their concerns to her compassionate spirit. Gale is a Door County Scottie Rally favorite and has been responsible for some significant behavioral and health changes once recommendations are implemented at home. Session Fee is $35

Abdominal Ultrasound Screening (Friday and Saturday)

We are extremely grateful to Kevin Byl DVM (pictured) and Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists for their commitment to returning this year and providing ultrasounds on fur kid(s) particularly those 6 years of age and older. We know from work done by Dr. Debbie Knapp DVM at Purdue University that we have a better chance of managing/intervening on abnormalfindings the earlier they are detected. Scotties are 20 times more prone to developing bladder cancer which is the major reason we provide this screening for an affordable rate. Session Fee is $60
