Many teams find the AKC Handler Discrimination Class both challenging and deflating. They may do well in training but suddenly are calling false alerts in trial. BOO!

What causes handlers to call false alerts in the first place when we are talking about the AKC Handler Discrimination Class? What was their dog doing that made them call "Alert" in that given moment? Was there some sort of communication breakdown between the dog and handler? What happened and how we can prevent it from happening again in the future?! We will answer these questions, and more, in this webinar.

In this webinar we will delve into the common causes for false alerts seen in AKC Scent Work Handler Discrimination searches and what can be done in training to avoid false alerts. Suggestions offered will apply to BOTH ends of the leash.
