The seminar will be presented using video reviews of professional and Nosework dog teams in conjunction with power point presentations. This is a classroom presentation for humans only - no dogs please.
Saturday PM (no dogs please):
OLFACTION AND ODORS
The Nosework dog handler must learn to interpret their dog’s behavior when detecting odor molecules. The handler should have an understanding of the dog’s olfactory system and the odor molecules the dog detects. This seminar is for everyone who has a dog and is interested in how dogs use their nose to detect odors. This part of the seminar will cover the areas of Canine Olfaction, how the canine nose works, scent discrimination, factors effecting odors and utilizing your knowledge of Odors and Olfaction in K9 Nose Work®.
FOUNDATIONS TO FINESSE
Fred Helfers will provide field instruction to the handlers on how to build their foundational handling skills to the finesse handling skills that are required in competition. These training sessions will assist each nosework handler in identifying and strengthening those problem areas of handling their dog.
This day will be limited to 6 teams in the morning and 6 teams in the afternoon with unlimited auditor spots with both half day and full day options.
Do you have specific issues in your nosework training for which you'd like to find direction? Is your handling keeping your team from meeting its full potential?
This is a great option for instructors who wish to learn from Fred's problem solving with others, or for those who do not feel that their dogs would excel in a private session but may still be seeking ideas for their training. NACSW and CPDT CEUs are pending.
