Many Scent Work handlers who are interested in competing wish to do so in a variety of competition venues. However, each venue may use a specific type of odor preparation which means hides used in trial may have varying types of odor concentration. If a dog has only been exposed to Odor Concentration A but not Odor Concentration B, they may struggle at trials where Odor Concentration B is used.

In this 4-week course, we will outline ways to introduce our dogs to the concept of hunting for Birch, Anise or Clove using varying odor preparation techniques and odor concentrations. The focus will be on working in the four traditional search elements: Interior, Exterior, Vehicle and Container and the course will conclude with a set-up teams may use as a mock trial of sorts.

Ensure your dog understands how to work out odor puzzles regardless of odor concentration with this short, fun course!

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.
