  6. SUCCESS: You and your dog absolutely can be successful with online training  sessions as you would be with in person sessions.

INTRODUCTION TO SCENT GAMES

A fun game to play with your dog while stuck inside. You don’t need a lot of equipment just a room, some boxes and food. It’s easy training as your dog already knows how to smell, and it helps to further a relationship between the person and the dog. Any age or dog can play, even dogs that may have physical limitations. It encourages mental and physical stimulation while employing positive training using a dogs natural ability.

In addition to just having fun with your dog, this type of activity establishes a foundation for finding an odor in varying types of search areas (for sport as well as just fun training). Have fun and enjoy the time with your dog.

Who is this for?

  • This method of teaching weave poles is great for beginners/dogs who are just starting to learn weaves.
  • This method is for you, too! You know who you are: you feel like you’ve been working on weaves with guide wires for months (years?) but are stuck in the “IN BETWEEN”. Your dog weaves great—with guide wires—but can’t seem to get to the next level.
  • Your dog weaves but you just don’t have the speed you had hoped for.
  • Your dog is pretty good but struggling with entrances at speed (or not at speed).
  • Or anyone who is bored with this isolation and wants something to do.

No Excuses!

  • No weave poles?
  • Not a problem. I will show you how to make very inexpensive 2x2s
  • I’ve already trained with channel weaves, I don’t want to confuse my dog.
  • You will not confuse your dog!  Many trainers use this in addition to other methods. This method will help you fine tune what you already have.
  • It feels like I’m taking a step back with my weave training.
  • Sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward: consider it back chaining.
  • I don’t have time.
  • REALLY??
