National Llama Appreciation Day

The Greater Appalachian Llama and Alpaca Association (GALA) has initiated a national campaign to educate the general public about the history and virtues of llamas. We have designated June 21 for this special day because our summer solstice is simultaneously the winter solstice in the Andes, the ancestral home of the llamas. Plan an event this June to aid in this campaign to educate others on this wonderful animal.

John Mallon Level 1 Clinic
Fehrenbac Farms Evart, Mi

Cost for this 1 day clinic is $135. It will include quick breakfast snacks (donuts, granola bars, etc) beverages through the day, and lunch. There will be a dinner option for after the clinic for those who are wanting to attend, or dinner on your own.

Guarantee

Your hands and your brain are the only tools used. John asks that you bring your worst-behaved llama or alpaca, and offers a 100%, full money-back guarantee. All of John Mallon Clinics carry a 100% guarantee of satisfaction —

“If, at the end of the day, you don’t feel your money was well spent, your money will be returned, in full, on the spot, just like that.”

John even takes it one step further by saying:

“If, after two weeks of honestly applying what you have learned, you feel that your money was not well spent, call me on my toll-free number for a full refund.”

This guarantee is unprecedented in the industry.



Level I — “The Foundation”

The Level I Clinic is an intensive eight-hour day, packed with hands-on applications, eye-opening demonstrations, and thought-provoking insights. This foundation clinic comes very highly recommended by “old-timers,” newcomers and veterinarians alike, and is guaranteed to bring about a positive change in your relationship with your llamas or alpacas. This clinic will make you a trainer.

Learn the philosophy and principles of training, teaching and learning.
Learn how to apply these principles in ways that make sense-to you and your llamas or alpacas.
Learn to make a 5-second plan — it guarantees success and makes anything possible.
Learn how to tie the lifesaving quick-release knot.
Learn safe, relaxed leg handling; quiet, cooperative haltering; leading on a slack rope.
Learn why early desensitization of crias is crucial to the animal’s development, and how to perform the procedure.
Learn with “hands-on” experience — questions and answers — tips and insights — help with specific problems.

This is where it all begins — learn the psychology of prey animals — what makes them “tick,” in order to be able to work with them in ways they can understand - safely and peacefully. By working from the “inside out,” you will learn how to help your llama overcome his natural fears.

A limited number of animals may be hauled in for this clinic. Please make arrangements prior to coming. You will need to stall your animals in your trailer or in your own panels. There is no extra housing at our farm ;(

Out of state animals are required to have an 840 microchip and a health certificate within 30 days to comply with Michigan law. I have a chip reader on the premise.

In state llamas born after March of 2012 also must have an 840 microchip. Animals born prior to March of 2012 do not need a microchip. This again is to comply with Michigan law.

Prerequisite: Level I attendance is required before attending Level II, III, Show, or Driving Clinics.


Guest Hotel is the Osceola Grand Hotel

John Mallon Jackpot Obstacle clinic
Fehrenbach Farms Evart, Mi

Level One is a prerequisite to attend this clinic


“Jackpot Clinic”

For the more advanced llama and handler who is ready to step up to Jackpot competitions.

Fine-tune your performance partner and learn how little things can mean a lot of money in Jackpots.

Lots of tips on gaining the showman’s edge by making your cues “invisible.”

“Bomb-proofing” — Overcoming the fear response - you can’t expose him to everything he’ll ever see in competition, but you can help him learn to take new things in stride.

Judging — learn exactly what the judge is looking for, how runs are scored and why. Get inside the judge’s head.

Training tips — 40 years worth. There are a lot of wrong ways of doing things, and usually more than one right way, too. John has personally trained and shown numerous performance champions since 1985, and graduates of his clinics have consistently placed at the top of their classes at the big shows.

These clinics differ from show clinics in that they are specifically geared to the performance classes. No time will be spent discussing halter, showmanship, or conformation analysis. There will be very little lecture time; this is a full day of hands-on performance work, including, but not limited to:

Water, tarp, tire crossings
Bridges and ramps, both forward and reverse
Jumps — including deadfall, cavaletti, barrels, solid walls
Backing — around, through or under, in serpentine or any other configuration
Sidepassing, turns on forehand, and haunch turns
Any other obstacles you want to try, have encountered, or dream up

If you’re serious about competing in the big money Jackpots, this clinic is for you!

Prerequisites: Previous Level I Clinic is mandatory (no exceptions), and previous Level II is recommended as a prerequisite to attending this Jackpot Clinic.
