Intelligent Disobedience...SAY WHAT?!?! Webinar

Ever heard of intelligent disobedience? Want to know what it is? How to implement it? Why you may need it?

Webinar Details

Intelligent disobedience is the concept of your canine partner understanding there is a hierarchy of behavior in Scent Work, with some behaviors ranking higher in importance than being obedient to their handler's whims. In this scenario, your dog is more obedient to what is truly important during the search, odor.

In this webinar, we will discuss what intelligent disobedience looks like, how to help your dog learn when to make these decisions, and how to effectively use these concepts to improve your team's decision-making skills and overall search abilities in both trial and training.
