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!

Reading Your Dog: The Advanced Hides

January 21st, 2020 @ 9:30pm ET

It’s not enough to be able to read your dog on basic hides… the advanced hides are where the rubber meets the road!

Once you figure out how to read your dog, you can do well with all of those straightforward hides in uncomplicated areas… but what about when it gets harder???

This webinar will build on last week’s webinar on reading your dog…

  • What about Inaccessible hides?
  • High hides?
  • DEEP Inaccessibles?
  • Is it distraction or target odor?
  • Oh my gosh… pee??? Can you tell the difference?

Let’s take a look at different dogs and look for those similarities that will teach YOU how to read YOUR dog…. the result? More Yes’s and Less No’s!

Here’s the hint…

It’s all about EMOTION and MICRO MOVEMENTS…. Interested? Find out more!

The Power of the Single Hide Search

January 28th, 2020 @ 9:30pm ET

One of the most powerful training tools we have at our disposal is the Single Hide Search. Power Boost your training with simplicity!

Once our dogs start to understand how to search, the world becomes our oyster. So Many Search Areas, So Little Time… it can be tempting to go a little crazy and to start to place hides in as many cool locations as we can find…
But… There is power in simplicity.

This webinar will focus on discussion HOW and WHEN to use a Single Hide Search. Used effectively, a Single Hide Search will amplify the educational value of odor, build odor obedience, instill good search habits, and train your eye.

We will learn how to plan and identify opportunities for Single Hide Searches… and then how to build on them for subsequent searches with either the same dog or different dogs!
Video Examples of powerful setups will be shown!

SPECIAL WEBINAR EVENT!!

Following the Path Up the Levels: A Benefit for FDSA NW Scholarship Fund

January 29th, 2020 @ 9:00pm ET

Moving up the levels in Nosework means achieving certain fundamentals. Know what you need to prepare for on your Journey!

100% of the profits from this webinar will be donated to the FDSA Nosework Scholarship Fund, established in memory of Judd.

Judd was my partner and Heart Dog who built my intense love for the sport and who brought me on his incredible journey from ORT to SMTx3…. The FDSA Nosework Scholarship Fund was established to pay for Gold Level classes in the School of Nosework at the Fenzi Dog Sports Academy for folks who can benefit from a little help and support.

About this webinar:

We will cover the journey of the Nosework dog and talk about what the dog (and handler!) needs to learn and develop along the way. You may be surprised… the list of skills that I will cover may not be what you expect….

The path up the levels isn’t about the ribbons (although they are fun!)… it’s about education and growth… and some of that will be difficult and tax you in new ways…. but it will be a journey that will change you in incredible ways that you will never forget.

This webinar is meant to inspire and give direction… we won’t get deep into the HOW… but we WILL get you wanting to get out and Search!

This webinar will be facilitated by my good friend, Ana Cilursu. Ana is custodian for the fund… in addition to being my Teaching Assistant for many of my classes at FDSA. I will be presenting the material and Ana will help to get your questions teed up….
