One of the best advantages we have as a competitor is adjusting to each search and supporting our dog in a competent and non-interfering way. Because most of us aren’t able to compete in trials regularly, we try to perfect these skills in training sessions. The purpose of this workshop is to help the participant make the most of training to prepare for trial in a way that makes the most sense to the dog and reduces the chance of unexpected or never-before-seen behaviors. We will discuss in detail how training often is very different than trialing (whether you realize it or not) and how to have more consistency between the two. As teams move up to Elite and Summit this is imperative! As we move up in levels, teamwork becomes more and more important. Training is not just about setting hides and problem-solving for the dog. It’s about improving our observation skills, noticing when our dog needs us, and having the tools to support our dogs effectively. This workshop encapsulates recognizing when our dogs are problem-solving, stuck and in need of assistance, or close to solving the puzzle. Become more proactive and productive in the search! Dana will tailor each exercise to the team’s level and will use her many years of experience observing this game we call nose work to help each individual team improve and become a more cohesive unit. We will have discussions, work dogs, and learn how to review videos to facilitate the most learning.
