Connecting the Dots: Communication Confidence Seminar with Ann Gunderson, B.Ed, Certified Nose Work Instructor. Date: Sunday, May 29th. Times: 8:30am-12:30pm and 1:30pm-5:30pm. Location: Pineview Hall, Prince George, BC. Cost: $125 for working spots, $75 to audit.

Problems in Nose Work/Sporting Scent Detection usually stem from communication breakdowns. Often the handler can't understand what the dog is communicating and the dog gets confused by the handler's lack of understanding. To help this, the Handlers need to be able to decipher all that their dog is saying to them for the entire search. Learn about the subtle instinctual changes of behaviour and all the different "looks" the dogs may give you while searching. Learn about the developmental stages of a dog's alert communication and what this means to your searches. Find out where your dog is at and how to continue to build confidence in their communication. Learn how to build a more confident final response from the dog and endurance at source.
