Simply put: an independent hunter will be a better hunter. We discuss why this is true in this 90-minute webinar.
With the majority of dog sports and activities, the human is taking the lead. We show them which obstacles to take in agility or the specific behaviors we want them to do in obedience. We direct when they should eat their meals, where they can go potty, who they can greet and how...our dogs do not take the lead in most things in their lives.
Scent Work, by design, is different. They are the ones with the nose so they should be in the driver's seat. But more than just that, they should trust their own skills when working out a given odor puzzle. Especially if their handler is directing them to the exact opposite of what they need to do!
In this webinar, we will discuss why independence matters, how to assess if your dog is actually an independent hunter or if you are inadvertently making them more dependent on you.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
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!NW3 Trial Prep Course
