When it comes to teaching Scent Work, it is easy to fall into the trap of simply setting hides, allowing dogs to hunt and calling it a day! This approach neglects so many other facets to this activity and can very well leave dog and handler teams lacking in crucial skills and understanding.
As instructors, it is our job to not merely explain "HOW" our clients are to do something, but also the "WHY" and "WHEN". In essence, we instructors should be guiding our human clients to become little baby trainers in their own right! This approach ensures they may confidently and mindfully work with their dogs outside of our classes or private sessions.
In this 90-minute webinar, we will discuss ways instructors can be more mindful in how they deliver their instruction, ways to build and nurture more thoughtful training and practice sessions from their clients and identify common pitfalls to avoid.

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
