Scentwork has taken off across the world as a fun activity to share with your dog, and there are a whole range of methods and approaches. While some methods concentrate on competition, there’s increasing interest in the use of scent work and nose games within behavior modification programs. This session will refresh your knowledge of basic scent work approaches and their effects on the canine brain. Then, using a mixture of case studies and video, it will explore how scent work can play a key role in behavior modification for a range of commonly presenting problems in dogs, including fear, frustration, and more. Learning Objectives: • How “sniffing” affects the canine brain. • What kind of scent work might we use in a behavior modification program and why. • How we can integrate scent work into behavior modification plans.
