Many of us train regularly and would like to practice with a better understanding of how hides work and odor moves. Please join Barbara Schwerdt, hosted by Linda Buchanan, CNWI, in exploring the world of hide placement and movement of odor!
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION : This workshop is open to all Nose Work enthusiasts that have a basic understanding of Nose Work training techniques.
CNWI/ANWI CEUs: 4 per day
• What might/will affect the hide - Where will odor be traveling
• Where (if anywhere) will odor be trapping/pooling
• Where will dog first catch odor - How will dog work the scent
• Where will dog alert - How to set objectives for hides
• How to set up skill building to help your dog progress
At this workshop, you will gain knowledge through discussion, video review, and hands-on interactive participation about hide placement. THIS IS NOT YOUR ORDINARY NOSE WORK WORKSHOP! All participants (working spots and audit spots alike) will be involved in setting hides and learning through doing! This is designed as a hands-on, two-day workshop for working teams and auditors. While dogs will definitely work hides, they will not work each and every hide. The workshop focuses on setting hides and exploring how dogs work them. We will have 20 working spots available each day.
Since this is designed as a two-day workshop. Handlers will benefit most by attending both days. However, handlers have the option to bring a different dog to work each day. Working spots are only available to those attending both days. Audit spots are available for the two-day workshop. Saturday auditing is not required to audit on Sunday, but the progression of the workshop builds on the material presented on Saturday.
• Two-day Workshop working spot: $325.00
• Two-day Auditing spots - $125.00
• If you are willing to commit to audit both days and video the working teams- $65.00
