COMMUNICATION OF THE SEARCH — PART 2
A Weekend with Sue Sternberg and Dana Zinn
Join Sue and Dana for the follow-up to their fun and informative, “Communication of the Search” workshop. During this weekend, Sue will provide brilliant new examples of how our movement and body position affects our dogs in the search; using both nose work and other sports to illustrate. She will also analyze videos supplied by auditors to help each handler understand what happened in the search.
Dana will coach dog teams through exercises to expand on the independent hunt theme that was covered in weekend one. Handlers will be given a chance through carefully setup exercises to practice being an active participant in the search while still giving the dog as much opportunity as possible to lead. She will also help handlers understand when it’s appropriate to make suggestions, so the dog feels supported and listened to. We will also build on increasing the dog’s drive to move through/into the handler’s space.
Do not miss this chance to work with these two trainers who are experts in their craft and offer inciteful and humorous looks into the dog’s world of the search.
Participants (called auditors in the registration system) will submit a trial video for review during the workshop.
