How to Set Fabulous Nosework Hides For Training Success, Two-Day Seminar - Saturday, January 11th, 2019 and Sunday, January 12th, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
with Chuck and Kathy Hahn
This two-day seminar will be a immersion in effective hide setting. You will learn about basic and more advanced hide setting, the difference between accessible and inaccessible hides, the parameters for different trial venues, as well as preparing and storing odor, and clean up after searches. We will also discuss what to do when a hide is found to be too challenging for your dog. The second day will focus on nosework hide puzzles, converging and pooling odor, and how to build your dog's skills through hide placement. After some classroom lecture, the class will break into teams to set up searches. Working teams will then run the searches with their dogs and a discussion will follow. This class will be a fun prep class for feeling more confident in setting hides and training on your own. We ran this class last year as a one day class, but this year we are expanding into more advanced territory. Both Working and Audit spots will be participating in setting up the searches and placing hides. The Working spots will be running their dogs on the searches. All Working dogs will need to be competent in the first three target odors of Birch, Anise and Clove. This is a very fun, and very interactive seminar! We hope to see you there!
