NOTE: Material for this add-on module will be released on March 27, 2023.

This add-on seminar module will discuss what instructors should consider when they are assessing prospective and current canine clients. Which approaches will work best for this dog? Would they do better with private one-on-one instruction or would a group class environment work? Are there any issues you need to keep in mind to ensure they can be successful and to keep everything safe? For current clients, how can you assess whether they are progressing or not? Have new issues cropped up?

NOTE: This module is an additional resource to the Teaching Scent Work Seminar by Dianna L. Santos and Lori Timberlake.

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!
