The Anatomy of the Search will dissect all the pieces and phases of your search experience. During the day we will cover, not what type of searches you’ll be involved with, but the pieces of the search itself that can be the difference between walking out with a success or wondering what was needed to leave with a “yes”. Thresholds, detailing, perimeters, presentation and more; what they mean and how to create the most effective search experience possible. Jill Marie will integrate personal experiences, video review (time permitting), group discussion and work with participating dogs (as appropriate) to help attendees better analyse the search area in front them. This day is for all K9 Nose Work® & scent sport enthusiasts and instructors regardless of level of experience. (Dogs must be on odour to participate. Practical exercises may be adjusted to meet the specific needs of the participating teams from beginning-elite). Working teams may be isolated to training levels, but auditing is open to all levels. Learning Objectives Break down each element and individual search area by component. Increase handler confidence through identifying the commonalities of all elements and search area for better planning and support of their K9 partner. Participants will gain a better understanding of the commonalities among searches vs. the differences Summary of Workshop Anatomy of a Search is designed to enhance a team’s performance by identifying the similarities of each search regardless of element or location. Handlers will learn to analyse the search environment not based on what it is but by how the individual components come together to create the overall search picture.
