Building Physical and Mental Confidence

Elevated hides are not just about the odor and how the dog communicates an elevated hide, it is also about physical and mental confidence to best navigate the odor trail to a position from which the dog can confidently decide on the location of that hide. This webinar is about the building steps to help your dog understand vertical movement and space.

We start training separately from odor, laying the foundation to build confidence and body awareness. Exercises like those in foundation agility or fitness will build competence in movement and navigation of vertical spaces on a variety of surfaces both stable and slightly unstable. We will emphasize hind end awareness, flexibility, balance, and overall conditioning.

The progression then builds to introducing odor into a setup that the dog has already successfully navigated from previous exercises. We will build on the reinforcement histories present both in the physical navigation of the space AND the sourcing of odor. This builds the skill set for a dog to more comfortably and confidently use the environment to locate vertically challenging hide.


Be certain to check out Vicky's Shrinking Space = Success Webinar focused on how we can build our dog's body awareness and confidence so they may better work within tight and cluttered spaces.


This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs and 1.5 CPDT CEUs for trainers (not behavior consultants).


Are you training in Scent Work? We sometimes overlook the physical strength and ability a dog needs to be successful in Scent Work. This webinar will give you the tools to ensure your dog has the physical and mental confidence to rock their elevated hide searches.

Are you trialing in Scent Work? Elevated hides can stump many teams! Make certain your dog is physically and mentally ready!

Are you a Scent Work instructor? Garner some ideas for exercises or progressions you can incorporate in your own program, both in and outside the context of Scent Work, to ensure your dog and handler teams are ready to tackle their elevated hides.
