Building Reliable Commitment to Odor

I recently did a Facebook Live and wanted to share it with all of you!  Are you curious about the response, “It Depends”, when determining how to train your dog to drive to odor no matter what?  Are you confused about Trained Final Responses and don’t know what is best for your team?  This is a FREE video… I hope it helps!  Enjoy!

The Early and the Late Airings will feature identical content and will both be done LIVE. You DO NOT need to sign up for both! You will get the recording afterwards for whichever airing you sign up for. 

Alerts! How to Develop and How to Avoid Dangerous Pitfalls (early airing)

Wednesday April 8th, 2020 @ 2:00pm ET

Training an Alert is fraught with dangers but if you understand the necessary components, it can be done well. Avoid those nasty pitfalls!

This webinar will help you to understand the KEY COMPONENTS of an Alert and how to train them. We will also talk about when an alert behavior makes sense to train and WHY many dogs run into trouble. We will cover both the Dog Chosen Alert and the Handler Chosen Alert. I will also cover the Temporary Alert that can be really helpful in developing the dog’s general understanding.

Key Topics Include:

  • When an alert makes sense
  • What are the pitfalls and why do they happen?
  • Key components to success
  • General approach
  • Building duration behaviors
  • What about a temporary option?
  • Transitioning the marker timing from marking sourcing to marking the final response
