"THE ART OF TEAMWORK" seminar with Christina Bunn, CNWI

Unlike any other dog sport, detection sports rely mostly on the dog. We are utilizing a nonspeaking being to detect something with their nose that we cannot see. Wow, that sounds challenging! Even though the dog has the nose we are supposed to have the brains. As the scent problems increase, time limits decrease, the dog requires and even appreciates well timed non-obtrusive assistance. We will be exploring each individual team and there will be opportunity to learn how relationship is truly at the heart of teamwork.

-To leash or not to leash and the factors that would help you decide

-To pattern or not and what is a pattern anyway? Is it right for my dog?

-Dealing with recreational sniffing

-Moving your dog off one hide to find more in a non-conflicting way

-And so much more
