Class: Muzzle Work & Full Body Bite

The theme of this class will be muzzle work and working your dogs using a muzzle versus a bite suit and/or sleeve. Topics discussed will include building good muzzle work, independence, courage, determination, forgiveness, stress resistance, frustration, conditional behavior and more.


Class: Use of Explosive Simulants & Pseudo Aids

We will be discussing explosive simulants versus pseudos: Is it real? Is it a pseudo? Is it a simulant? Why should we care? Topics covered will include the effective training of a sniffer dog, problems when training only with real materials and the categories of odor mimics and real target substances.
