IS helper work a male dominated area or do we have women doing helper work?


Can someone share a video of women doing helper work if there is any out there?


cheers

My trainer's daughter got the decoy of the year award from the police officers' association. She was 19 (20 now).

Doesn't seem like I should put stuff up without her permission. I did post one before and Jeff said I was going to get the girl bitten, which wasn't COMPLETELY true...

I see nothing wrong is Girl Helpers, but one thing make sure you are fit for you will need to be so, it may look easy but it takes a toll on a Helper after a while and fitness is paramount, Make sure you get a good tutor, a bad or inexperinced helper can ruin good Dogs

I second Anne Kent.  She has many videos on YouTube.

I always have to chuckle about the "fit" comments.  I've seen so many guys that looked like they are/were one catch away from blowing a gasket doing helperwork.  I've also seen some "old" guys and some really young guys doing excellent work.  Age and outward appearance or how physically fit we might judge someone to be aren't all that matters.  I'm a girl an used to be a gymnast.  Not a lot of people can try to tell me what it means to be "fit", but....I have no interest in doing helperwork.  I'd rather have a good helper with a sprained ankle working my dog on a back tie or something like that than a marathon champion or Michael Phelps doing crappy work.
