Leveraging Containers for Life
Containers offer an amazing opportunity to introduce a variety of odor puzzles and challenges, all while keeping the game fun and engaging.
NOTE: Material for this course will be released weekly starting on September 5th.
Did you know you can introduce and master a wide array of odor puzzles and challenges using containers alone? Well, you can!
All too often, people are rushing to get away from containers. Some teams DREAD tackling containers, which is so sad! Our focus with this course is to help dog and handler teams better leverage and LOVE container searches.
Better still, we will outline how you may tackle these container searches with primary, paired odor and odor hides. Therefore, we intend for this course to be helpful for everyone, regardless of their experience level.
