This workshop will focus on how the human half of the team influences the search and how to notice the behaviors of your dog shows before he gets to source. We can change the outcome of the search for the better or the worse with our body movements, speed, orientation, directions etc. Understanding what we need to do and to adapt quickly to what our dogs are telling us can reduce 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 out 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. We will also discuss pre-trial exercises you can do to help you on trial day. This may be a new approach to many handlers, but it will give the dogs freedom to do what they do best, which is hunt for odor.
