We simply want our dogs to go into the search area and find their hides, is that so much to ask?! Well, it depends. Have we been clear about WHAT it is we want them to hunt for? Have we considered the complex odor profile we have been presenting them in our training and what they may encounter when trialing? Could there be a disconnect between the two? Is our dog looking for a specific cocktail that only exists when we are training?!
In this is webinar, the final in a 4-part webinar series, we will walk through how handlers may go about more mindfully evaluating what their dogs THINK they are supposed to hunt for and proof against common misunderstandings (e.g., Birch + cotton swab + magnet + metal tin). All the while, we will outline how to be fair and just to our dogs. Training exercises and suggestions will be provided.

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
