Do you wonder if a passive alert may help you read your dog better? Do you have a “destructiveness” problem you want to fix? Learn the pros and cons, the potential fallout, and how to train a passive alert if you deem it is a good fit for you and your dog.
A trained alert is simply a behavior a dog is trained to do when they reach odor. Active/aggressive alerts are behaviors like barking and scratching, passive alerts are sitting, lying down, or the latest trend, freezing. Many methods of Nose Work or Scent Work begin and prioritize the development of a clear and consistent alert behavior, while other methods allow a dog to choose whatever behavior comes naturally.
In this 90-minute webinar, we will discuss different methods of teaching the passive alert and whether or not it is right for you and your dog.

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
