Threshold Hides: From Terrible to Terrific Webinar
Threshold hides. Those pesky hides that are within the first five or six feet of the start line in any element. Your dog could rush by them! You could inadvertently push her by them! How can we train these ideas so that we and our dogs are ready when they are encountered?
Let’s look at a systematic approach to building threshold skill, including getting a “thinking” dog at the start line, and how we as the handler can help! Mostly, our dogs miss thresholds because of expectation - they expect there to be odor deeper in the space because, let’s face it, that’s the majority of the dog’s experience! We can easily change that dynamic through consciously placed hides. We’ll also talk about using aids such as pairing and small fans to manipulate the odor to give the dog the experience we are looking for.
Breaking down the ideas gives us better learning, better training, and ultimately better trialing!
