Once our dogs understand the basic premise of the Scent Work game, we may move into offering some proofing exercises. However, if we are not careful and mindful in how we design and execute these proofing training exercises, the results can be less than ideal. You can end up with a dog who is confused, baffled or demotivated and frustrated.

In this webinar we will discuss some of the common pitfalls people fall into when designing their proofing exercises, better define what the real goal of proofing should be and how to better organize your proofing training overall.

Are you interested in trialing with your dog? Properly proofing your dog will ensure they are better able to work around distractions, focus on finding their hide and have a proper understanding of what this game is all about. We touch upon all of this in this webinar!

Are you currently doing proofing exercises with your dog but uncertain how they are going? See if you have inadvertently fallen into some of the common pitfalls and glean some tips on how you can shore up and improve your proof training exercises.

Are you a Scent Work instructor? Ensure you are setting up your students up for success by offering solid proofing exercises as opposed to trick questions that will confuse, baffle and frustrate human and canine alike.

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.

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!
