Top speed to top search dog
Does your dog do everything at top speed? Does she lack concentration and self control? How would it feel to be able to set up an activity where she learns these skills for herself?
Baggage searches give your dog the opportunity to sniff for rewards (which you KNOW she loves to do!), while discovering that if she is too fast, too distracted, she simply won't find what she wants.
Search specific skills are also a wonderful way to add to your scentwork skillset and have more fun working with your dog. This course will teach you and your dog how to search baggage, i.e. suitcases, handbags, rucksacks, etc., systematically and successfully.
The lessons will help you to think about how much scent the dog is likely to access according to the type of bag and how to maximise or minimise the scent picture. This will equip you with the knowledge of how to set the correct level of challenge according to your dog's scentwork skills.
Following my baggage search protocols, you will take your dog from basic baggage searches with empty bags and easy to access finds to advanced searches with fully packed, closed bags.
