Drive building is something that is inherent in the foundation of the K9 Nose Work® training philosophy. As we begin to focus on our dog’s development and our development as handlers we spend much time building skills we and our dogs need for competition. During this time it is important to not leave drive building by the wayside. We will explore ways to infuse your training with exercises that build hunt drive in your dog while simultaneously building and challenging your skills as a handler. As a progression of training, it is helpful to build and foster your dog’s determination to get to source. We have created the association between the target odors and our dog’s primary reinforcer (food or toy), so our dogs have a definite desire to get to source – let’s take that a step further! We will explore pathways to create a dog who will not leave a scent problem until they have achieved success!
