When Proofing Goes Wrong Webinar

It is vitally important that proofing be a part of any Scent Work training program. However, it is entirely possible for proofing to confuse, frustrate or demotivate your dog if done poorly. In this webinar, we outline common pitfalls people fall into and better ways to design your proofing sessions.

Once our dogs understand the basic premise of the Scent Work game, we may move into offering some proofing exercises. However, if we are not careful and mindful in how we design and execute these proofing training exercises, the results can be less than ideal. You can end up with a dog who is confused, baffled or demotivated and frustrated.

In this webinar we will discuss some of the common pitfalls people fall into when designing their proofing exercises, better define what the real goal of proofing should be and how to better organize your proofing training overall.
