JUNE 19th SCENT DETECTION INTERIORS WORKSHOP
We are very excited to be hosting Steve DeTata from California, for a "Revisiting the Basics" workshop on the 19th of June, out here in Northern Utah. This is a working and/or audit workshop, in a great building in Murray, Utah. The focus will be on Interiors searches, with plenty of rooms to go through. Below is a picture of a board and train dog of ours in the same building. Steve is an accomplished competitor and instructor with tons of knowledge and experience in the sport detection arena. He is also very passionate about the sport. The workshop is 9 AM to 6 PM.
Snacks and drinks will be provided. If staying all day please bring your own lunch.
Dogs must be safely crated inside vehicles during the workshop, at least for the morning sessions. An email with guidelines for safe crating during warm days will be sent to all partecipants. Crating inside the building will be possible for the afternon, if it gets too hot.
We are taking a maximum of 10 working spots, to be able to run teams through several searches the the whole day.
Working spots fee (all day): $ 185
Audit spot fee (all day) : $ 100
Please contact Val@XLearningK9s.com for questions and reserving a spot. If wanting a working spot, please send some info about your team mate and where you are as a team. Every team has their own strengths and needs. Each team will be evaluated and individual suggestions will be given, with the goal of improving performance. All teams must be on Birch, Anise and Clove target odors.
Some of the topics:
*Are you reading your dog or is your dog reading you?
* Reward delivery and continuing the search
*Covering the search area – being methodical vs. your dog deciding where to go
*Keeping focus, dealing with distractions.
* Starting the search
*When is the search over?
