When it comes to training in Scent Work, it can be exceedingly difficult to determine if it is best to wait the dog out, to quit while you are ahead or to step in to help. For instance, you have designed a training search for your dog, but they are struggling to find the hide. What do you do?!

In this webinar, we will discuss the three options of waiting the dog out, quitting while you are ahead and stepping into help, the pros and cons of each and when best to apply them. The primary focus will be making decisions when training, however, we will also discuss how the very same decisions can be made when tackling a search at a trial with your dog.


This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.
