Dealing with Frustration Threshold Issues in Scent Work Webinar

Solving odor puzzles in Scent Work searches can be rather challenging and there are lots of dogs who will tap out once they meet their frustration threshold. In this webinar, we will outline some ways to help these dogs realize they can stick with the puzzle, even when it is hard.

There are many dogs who have a low frustration threshold, which means they may quit on a search or otherwise disengage when a puzzle is too challenging for them.

In this webinar, we will discuss why this happens, what it looks like within the context of Scent Work and outline some training solutions for teams to try.


This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.
