Does your dog perform great at home and at class, but under-perform at trial? Do you struggle to reproduce the problems you have at trial in training?
All of this may have absolutely nothing to do with a lack of skills on the part of your dog - they KNOW how to tackle the searches or solve the odor puzzles.
It may also have nothing to do with your abilities as a Scent Work handler - you KNOW how to support them, read their cues, manage the search area. Perhaps the real issue is your inability to cope and deal with competition stress.
In this webinar, Michael will walk you through how you can turn competition stress from a negative to a positive.
You've done work necessary to provide your dog the foundation and skills they need to successfully navigate searches and find their hides. You've practiced. Watched and learned. Yet time and time again, once you are asked to perform well as a team at a trial, everything seems to fall apart.
Competition stress is a very real thing and hobbles countless teams who otherwise should be cleaning house! So, in this 90-minute webinar, Michael will discuss some easy at-home exercises you can do to that will help you benefit from your stress instead of suffering from it.
This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.
