This add-on seminar module will discuss what instructors should consider when they are assessing prospective and current handler clients. Which approaches will work best for this for this handler? Are there any special considerations they bring to the table? How would they best learn or take in the information you need to give them? Can you meet their needs? How can you best keep them engaged and part of the process? Will they fit into your program, or do they have vastly different goals or preferences?

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!
