Searches are about so much more than tiring your dog out or filling time.
You can meet challenges and solve problems simply by designing smart scentwork searches.
Don't worry. I know that setting out a scentwork search isn't as simple as it seems. Neither is hiding the scented articles. But now you don't have to leave things to chance. Or rely on guesswork. In this course I will help you make great choices that will help your scentwork team enjoy every single search.
By learning why to use certain objects, where to place them and what you are aiming for you will have a clear plan for your searches. Understanding why to set goals, and how to figure out what those goals should be for you and for your dog, is key to having a fulfilling and successful time with scentwork. No more frustration. No more over- or under-estimating your challenge level. With this course I give you the tools to find your perfect starting place. Then you can plot your own roadmap to take you right to where you want to be.
You will learn:
- How to find your skill level, and your dog's skill level
