We simply want our dogs to go into the search area and find their hides, is that so much to ask?! Well, it depends. Have we been clear about WHAT it is we want them to hunt for? Have we considered the complex odor profile we have been presenting them in our training and what they may encounter when trialing? Could there be a disconnect between the two? Is our dog looking for a specific cocktail that only exists when we are training?!
In this is webinar, the final in a 4-part webinar series, we will walk through how handlers may go about more mindfully evaluating what their dogs THINK they are supposed to hunt for and proof against common misunderstandings (e.g., Birch + cotton swab + magnet + metal tin). All the while, we will outline how to be fair and just to our dogs. Training exercises and suggestions will be provided.
This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.
