When we train for Scent Work, everyone starts with thinking about how to train the dog. Truly the dogs are the easy ones to train. What often gets lost in the process is the fact we need to train handlers to support dogs while they search, and ultimately how to create and cultivate synergy as a team.
In this series we'll discuss how from the beginning stages of Scent Work we should create drills that may be specific to one half of the team but have implied tasks to train both.
We'll focus on hide placements for the dog that drive search behaviors of the handler. How situational awareness of the handler supports the dog's ability to search. Finally, we will cover how to ensure that from imprinting to trial we build mutually supporting teams.
IMPORTANT: This webinar is the first in the series and will be focusing on the dog. The entire series will span three separate webinars:
- Training With The End in Mind; Focus on the Dog Webinar
- Training With The End in Mind; Focus on the Handler Webinar
- Training With The End in Mind; Focus on the Overall Team Webinar
This webinar has been approved for 2 CEUs through NACSW.

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
