Leash Handling in Tight Spaces – Jill Marie O’Brien What leash should you use for a search? How long should it be? How should it be managed? Should you work off leash? These are common questions handlers ponder that can be answered through an understanding of the environment in which you are working. Knowing how and when to adjust your leash handling, particularly in tight and busy spaces, is the central theme of this education day. Live demos and discussion will guide participants through the analysis of a space and how your positioning with your dog can affect the odor picture for better or worse. Building and Maintaining the Inaccessible Hide – Amy Herot Success of the inaccessible hide is built upon the dog’s understanding of the odor picture, where odor is coming from, and what he is supposed to communicate about it. Participants will review the components that introduce the concept of inaccessible to the dog, how to generalize the understanding and maintain strength in that ability without eroding a strong sense of source. Through live demos and discussion, Amy will illustrate a variety of inaccessible hide scenarios and how and when they apply in the dog’s training trajectory.
