This workshop will focus on how the human half of the team influences the search and how to notice the behaviors your dog shows before they get to source. We can change the outcome of the search for the better or for the worse with our body movements, speed, orientation, directions etc. Understanding what we do and to adapt quickly to what our dogs are telling us can reduce the confusion we create for our dogs. This brings wonderful teamwork to the dog’s search creating successful outcomes. The best way to see what is happening is to video the runs and analyze them. Seeing what we are doing compared to what our dogs are doing creates an understanding of what we need to change to have better communication through teamwork. We will also look at odor and how it moves in search areas. Is it trapping odor or are they working to source? Is it an elevated hide? There are so many questions, and the answers are in what our dogs tell us. This may be a new approach to many handlers, but it will give the dogs freedom to do what they do best, hunt for odor!
