Its About More Than Just Stuff Webinar

You are getting ready for a Scent Work practice session with your dog. Immediately, you begin bringing in lots of items for your search area. Chairs. Buckets. Stuff. You run your dog, and notice that they are checking all the items, but are not really searching the entire space. What about the corners? What about the walls? A dread falls over you...is there a hole in your training?! We will give you some suggestions in this webinar about how you can avoid the "just stuff" trap.

Webinar Details

As humans, it is very easy for us to fall into patterns when we are doing anything. The same is true in how we design and run our Scent Work practice sessions. This can be problematic however, as our dogs are extremely in-tune to patterns. Always place a hide on a certain item? Your dog will assume the hide will always be there. Go to a trial and that item is not there? It could be a problem. Another larger problem is when the dog associates the game with "stuff" as opposed to finding the source of the odor...no matter where it is. This results in a dog searching stuff instead of simply following their nose. In this webinar, we will go over some suggestions on how you can avoid these issues, and help your dog undertsand the true purpose of this game.
