Hierarchy of Behavior
What It Is and Why It Matters

Understand this crucial component and take your Scent Work training to the next level.

Ever wonder about how the rules of everyday life affect your Scent Work? Do you know what decisions your dog will make when presented with a choice? Or more importantly, do you know WHY your dog makes these decisions? Hierarchy of behavior is your dog's understanding of the rules of life and how they fit into it, affecting their decision-making in sometimes unexpected ways.

Webinar Details

In Scent Work, an understanding of the simple yet complex concept of hierarchy of behavior becomes extremely important, especially when the rules of everyday life and the rules of Scent Work can differ. The more purposely and consciously you can build your team's personal hierarchy of behaviors, the better it will be for your team. It will result in less conflict, better communication, and more efficient decision-making and searches for your team as a whole. Learn how to become a better and more thoughtful and thinking Scent Work team with this webinar.
