We all want our dogs to be successful in a search. But what defines success? Is a search only successful if all of the hides are found? Or is success gauged by the learning that occurred by either dog or handler? I think many of us agree that learning is the most important factor. So that means we, as handlers, need to be sure we know WHAT our dogs are learning in training. In this webinar, Dana will focus on common fixes that we do as handlers and some of the more subtle ones, too. She will also talk about how to avoid falling into those traps, not only by being more aware of your own movement, but also by being aware of the challenges you are setting for your dog in each search. She will discuss how having a plan B, or anticipating what could happen, can be a big aid to avoid falling into “fixing traps” that can backfire in competition. Join Dana for this discussion on one of the topics she is most passionate about and get a clearer idea of what she means by consistency between training and trialing, and how it can benefit us all as handlers.
