Finding the Dog's Motivation in Scent Work Webinar

We NEED our dogs to WANT to play the sniffy game. They cannot be forced to hunt. Thus, we must use what motivates them to our advantage.

We need our dogs to be motivated to search if we want any hope of being successful in Scent Work! There is no way we can FORCE our dogs to use their nose and solve these complicated odor puzzles. They must WANT to play the game.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to identify what motivates your dog, how this can differ depending on the search element, environment and situation and ways to use this information in designing flexible and effective Scent Work training plans.


This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.
