The Mindful Scent Work Instructor

9/26/2020 at 12:00PM PST/3:00PM EST

Dianna L. Santos

As Scent Work instructors, it is our job to not merely explain "HOW" our clients are to do something, but also the "WHY" and "WHEN".

In essence, we instructors should be guiding our human clients to become little baby trainers in their own right! This approach ensures they may confidently and mindfully work with their dogs outside of our classes or private sessions.

In this 90-minute webinar, we will discuss ways instructors can be more mindful in how they deliver their instruction, ways to build and nurture more thoughtful training and practice sessions from their clients and identify common pitfalls to avoid.

Judith Guthrie

Handler proofing is about learning how to successfully sift through all the intricacies of the conversation occurring between yourself and your dog during a Scent Work search. It is about helping your dog to be able to differentiate between what you meant to say and the inconsequential or unhelpful things you may say by accident.

In this webinar, we will talk about what handler proofing is, when to use it, when you might not want to use it, and discuss some strategies for how to start teaching this vital skill.
