Class: Obedience to Odor

This class will take handlers deeper into why detection dogs do what they do. Luis will delve into what drives are and how they are utilized. The term ‘obedient to odor’ refers to the dog understanding that odor drives the reward, not the handler. This fast pace class will cover everything from odor imprintation, to reward, to search patterns and the whys behind each of these components of detection dog training. Not only is this class highly entertaining but, most of all, it is also highly informative.
