We need our dogs to be motivated to search if we want any hope of being successful in Scent Work! There is no way we can FORCE our dogs to use their nose and solve these complicated odor puzzles. They must WANT to play the game.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to identify what motivates your dog, how this can differ depending on the search element, environment and situation and ways to use this information in designing flexible and effective Scent Work training plans.


90 minutes

This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.


Are you struggling with motivating your dog for their searches? Learn creative ways to identify what your dog's motivations can be in various search elements and situations and how you use these to your advantage in training.

Are you planning to trial or trialing right now? We NEED our dogs to want to play the game, especially with the added stress and pressure that goes along with trialing!

Are you an instructor? Every dog will have unique needs and motivations. Find creative ways to find out what motivates your canine clients and how to use those to your advantage in your training program, classes and exercises.

Probably sound like a broken record, but its easy to follow, makes me (and therefore my dog) enthusiastic, go at my own pace.

Introducing Birch Course

What did you enjoy about this course? Took me out of my comfort zone. Making me keep training logs. Teaching me to break down behaviors. That is huge because all I ever see is what I need to work on.

Now What Do I Do?! Course

I liked the pace of the course, how the material was presented and most importantly all of the wonderful feedback. I think the at-home learning experience was far better, due to the enormous amount of feedback (and encouragement!) that we would not get as much of in a live class.

Introduction to Scent Work Course

The explanation followed by the videos to show the skill or skills. That was helpful. The feedback on my videos was also helpful. The practices each week- gold!
