Taking things up a level, Scent 2 concentrates on handling skills, introducing directed searches and search patterns. These allow teams to increase the challenge of the searches, including changes of height, duration of search and multiple/zero finds. Building on the foundation searches, this day will push the boundaries and challenge your team.
This workshop is open to all handlers who have completed S1 as a handler or as a spectator who has taught their dog to find one specific scent and give an active indication (i.e. retrieve the article.)
Talking Dogs Scentwork® is based on the work that founder, Pam Mackinnon, did in Customs and Excise, and adapted to be fun for our pet dogs.
Workshops led by Sally Talbot, TD Scentwork Accredited Trainer.
Registration, and kettle on, from 9.30am and the day starts at 10am. We will finish by 2pm.
We have a maximum of 6 dog and handler teams in our workshops so you get plenty of time to watch others and more time working with your own dog. Expect to be mentally tired by the end of the workshop!
Handler fee £80
