The key to finding converged blind hides is your dog has to actually LOOK for converged hides. If you have a naturally fast dog, this can super challenging because they want to run off and find the next hide. Great! So how can we convince them that the next found hide is nearby?
The trouble is that the way that we train a dog, by necessity, patterns the dog to think that the next hide won’t be close. If a naturally speedy dog develops those beliefs you might struggle to pick up those converged hides when the search is blind and you don’t know how many hides there are.
In this workshop, we will systematically start to change the dog’s expectations and therefore will change their search behavior. Ultimately, this is the bridge between the lower levels and higher skills. And the exciting part is that it’s super easy to do!

Do you want a dog with the DESIRE to DRIVE to Source? Maybe your dog goes halfway and alerts? Maybe your dog gives up without pushing in when the hide is a bit deeper?
Sourcing is all about desire. Yes, we will cover pin-pointing in this webinar but it will go SO much further. True precision is about trajectory to source.
This webinar will give you the TOOLS to enhance that trajectory! Without a trajectory, all you have left are guesses from the dog’s perspective.We will cover pinpointing developing push in in this webinar… with a HUGE emphasis on DESIRE and MOTIVATION for source.
