It can be exhausting and frustrating living with a tireless dog, one with boundless energy and no off switch! These dogs often find it hard to concentrate, to listen and respond to you, and to feel calm and relaxed.
This course teaches you how to harness your dog’s natural ability to sniff and to use this skill to improve your life, and your dog’s life. By engaging with your dog in an activity that she already loves you can quickly help your dog to pay more attention to you, to be able to concentrate and in turn feel tired and relaxed. Calm dogs live longer (stress has been shown to be detrimental to the health of dogs and people), are happier and are more rewarding companions.
I know it can be scary to set a new goal. Would I be wrong to say that dog training isn’t as easy as it looks? I have taught so many dogs and coached so many people that this training method has been tested and honed to within an inch of it’s life. I know you can do it and I know that your dog will love it!
I’ve designed this course to allow all dogs to learn how to search for a specific scent for fun. This means that all advice is positive reward based, designed to help all dogs, whether food or toy oriented, no matter their age or breed type, and requires zero prior training or scentwork experience. Really – your dog doesn’t have to know anything before learning how to sniff for a specific scent.
