Understanding and Building Resilience into the Nosework Dog

Wednesday July 21, 2021 @ 9:00 PM EST

Fee: $19.99 

Does your dog have GRIT for odor? Will they dig deep and work hard even when the search or situation is challenging? That is resilience!

Resilience is a quality that can be developed and nurtured in our nosework dogs by evaluating and making the right training choices at the right time for our dogs.

This webinar will help you to understand how resilience is developed. Did you know that well meaning (and common) training practices can destroy your dog’s resilience from the very beginning? This webinar will help you to understand those pitfalls and what sorts of decisions and exercises you can explore to help your dog build grit for odor.

Grit is developed through thoughtful problem solving and through pushing the dog in a supportive way so that the dog develops both confidence and desire. This webinar will help you understand HOW you can build these qualities into your own training program.

The Role of the Handler in the False Alert and Missed Hide

Wednesday July 28, 2021 @ 9:00 PM EST

Fee: $19.99 

Lots of things can cause a false alert or a missed hide. The handler is big source of these errors!

Lots of things can cause a false alert or a missed hide. The handler is big source of these errors! In this webinar, we will cover how the handler can and does influence the dog and how this influence can lead to false alerts or missed hides. So often, handlers blame the dog… but what if the dog didn’t actually cause the error?

This webinar is perfect for every handler… because none of us are perfect! To become a better team, we need to first become a better team member.

This webinar will include video footage of missed hides and false alerts in order to understand how the handler may have contributed. We will review this footage in a supportive and educational manner that is both kind and without judgement. A special thank you goes out to all handlers who volunteered use of trial footage so that we can all learn!
