4 Week Course
When you are training nose work, you are in a true partnership sport. You and your dog need each other to be successful! You each have things the other wants, you want to know where the hide is and your dog wants to find it and get reinforcement, a win/win for everyone! So, why do things go wrong? Do you find that the environment can over ride your dogs desire to find a hide? Do you sometimes see your dog work slowly or with a lack of confidence? Does your dog sometimes find hides and not stay there with enthusiasm, or even leave them? Do you find your dog fringing or false alerting? Do you feel that sometimes you can’t trust your dog on containers, that they may hit on a distractor?
All of the above are from a lack of clarity in your training program. Your dog wants to work! Your dog wants the reward you have, so let’s make sure we are clear to our partner on how to win in the Nose Work game!
Each week we will address an element, and talk about some of the common problems that a team can face that shake their partnership. We will talk about solutions, and how to make a training plan that addresses the issue. Then we will take YOUR dog, you perfect partner, and address your training plan, and make a plan for you that week to address that element and build skill and confidence in the team.
