Do you ever wonder what all of that birch, anise and clove odor is doing as your dog is searching?
If so, this Scent Theory workshop will help you understand!
This seminar will discuss the canine olfactory system, how it works and why dogs do what they do so well.
Through videos and demos we will observe what behaviors the dog exhibits while working in specific conditions allowing us to better understand environmental effects and to read what our dogs are communicating.
This is a full day workshop. Attendees will be able to watch and learn from all teams participating.
Working Spots and auditors welcome.
Lunch will be provided.
Final details will be sent about a week before the workshop.
