“How to get your dog to search more Independently” with Florian Schneider June 20-21

“How to get your dog to search more Independently” with Florian Schneider June 20 to 21 9AM to 5PM

The reason why dogs are used in different branches of „nosework“ is their ability to smell things we don’t see by  screening different kinds of environments, large areas, unsafe rubble piles etc. in short time. That’s why dogs are so  valuable.  

This value get’s lost as soon as the dog does not work independently, does not cover the area, always builds contact  with the handler and needs multiple additional cues to search or even indicate. 

In this workshop you will see our approach of how we build solid workingdogs in SAR dog training. Dogs that work with  their handler but as effective biosensors, out of sight, mediocre – far distance to the handler and different exercises on  how to train these skills with your team and on your own! 

The theory and practical exercises will include: 

  • What’s the actual job description of a SAR dog? 
  • what cues should lead to what behavior 
  • what decisions need to be made by the dog?
  • The fine line between the needed independence and cooperation 
  • How to use prey games to gain independance, obedience and distance 
  • Search exercises 
  • Indication exercises 
  • individual problem solving as long as we have time for it
