What happens outside of the search is just as important as what happens in the search. If a dog is stressed, anxious or over-excited while waiting to search - that can affect what happens in the search. A stressed, anxious or over-excited dog can also affect the other students in class, both human and canine.

Not setting up an effective training space can also impact time management. Have you ever monitored how much time it takes for a team to get from the search area to the waiting area and for the next team to get from the waiting area to the search area? How much time is being wasted in your class that could be put towards everyone getting one more search in? It’s important to do this effectively with everyone’s safety and well-being in mind.

In this segment, we will also talk about how you can work with some dogs that may not be appropriate for many classes but can thrive in your classes with the proper set-up and management in place. In addition to the above topics, we will cover the following in this segment:

  • Types of Dogs in Your Classes
  • Setting Up Your Crating Space
  • Entering and Leaving the Search Area
  • Quiet Crating
  • Off-Site Classes

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!
