To help or not to help, that is the question. Is your dream to have a true partnership with your dog? To truly be a team? Are you always questioning what you should be doing? Do you want a more independent dog? A dog who listens to your suggestions? Do you feel like you can’t have both? Are you just frustrated with all the people telling you to do different things and pulling you apart, making you question every decision?!
In this webinar we will dive into the issue of helping your dog. When you should do it and when you should not. This is a huge and controversial topic and with the use of various videos as well as discussion we will help you begin the journey of figuring out what is right for YOUR team.
You've heard it all before: "you want your dog to be more independent!" and also "you need to be more involved as a teammate!". These two statements seem in complete and utter contradiction to one another. But there is a happy medium.
In this webinar, we will discuss both the importance of canine independence and handler involvement, in other words, the harmony between the two in order to create a cohesive and successful Scent Work searching team. Not the dog bending to the handler's will or the handler being a dope-on-a-rope, rather a balance between these two extremes. With the use of video examples, you will walk away with tips on how you can achieve this equilibrium with your own dog.
This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.
