Pairing is an effective training technique in Scent Work where a treat is placed directly with a target odor hide, allowing the dog to instaneously self-reward upon finding the hide. The following question oftentimes arises..."When can I fade the pairing?" However, this prompts us to posit, whether we SHOULD be fading the pairing when we are training our dogs? 

In this 90-minute webinar, we delve into whether one SHOULD fade pairing of target odor hides in training and if this was done, when and how to go about doing so.

Are you currently pairing your hides? You may have considered fading your pairing at some point in your training. See whether you should and if so, how you should go about fading the pairing.

Have you thought about using pairing? Perhaps you have heard about pairing and wanted to learn more about it. This webinar will also be outlining the benefits for this effective training technique.

Are you interested in competing in Scent Work trials? As we all know, hides are not paired a trial, so obviously we would want to fade the pairing from our hides in training to prepare, right? Well, not necessarily. Take this webinar to learn more.

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.
