Containers have proven to be one of the most challenging elements in nose work for many teams. Why is this? Is the problem in training? Or is it handler related? Both? The answer to this question differs for every team, but there are some consistencies in both training and handling that can cause a team to come up short more often than desired. However, all hope is not lost!
In this webinar, Dana will tackle these questions and take a detailed look at common handler errors in containers and where holes may lie in training. In addition, she will discuss odor movement and why dogs may make the decisions they do in container searches.
- Odor movement and availability
- Foundation training
- Handling in training vs trialing
- Common misunderstandings in trials and why they occur
- Letting go of past mistakes and regaining trust in your dog
Join Dana for an in-depth look at this most perplexing element and gain valuable understanding that will hopefully help you move forward with more confidence and perhaps find joy in your container searches.
