Inaccessible Hides, Problem Solving For When Dog False Alerts, Crack Hides/Buried Hides and Building Hunting Duration

Day 1, Session 1: Inaccessible Hides
The key to working “inaccessible hides” is to have the dog know that he is to tell you about “source” and not “odor.” If a dog does know that he is to tell you about “source” and not “odor,” than the dog will try to find a “route in” to physically access the hide. This session will explore what a dog looks like when he is “bracketing,” or physically trying to access the hide versus when the dog is ”sourcing” the hide. We also will explore how the dogs work very deep inaccessible hides.

Day 1, Session 2: Problem Solving For When Dog False Alerts
”False Alerts” can occur for many reasons. Gail will explore some of the reasons that a dog false alerts and suggest exercises to reduce the risk that a dog will ”false alert.”

Day 2, Session 1: Crack Hides/Buried Hides
”Crack Hides/Buried Hides” are a learned-skill for a dog and are being used more frequently in competitions. This session will expose the dog to a variety of ”crack hides” and ”buried hides” that you can continue to work on when you train at home.

Day 2, Session 2: Building Hunting Duration
The objective of all Nose Work Training is to develop an absolute belief in the dog: 1) That there will always be a hide to be found; and 2) That the dog will always be successful. Gail calls these the “Twin Beliefs” and together they help create the proper “Hunting Mindset” in the dog. The proper “Hunting Mindset” is what is necessary for a dog to search for longer periods of time and/or to search in the absence of odor without displaying “Displacement Behaviors.” In this session, we will explore how to strengthen our dog’s “Twin Beliefs” and to develop our dog’s confidence to search for longer periods of time.
