Severus Snape NW3! 👃🏼🙌🏼🏅🍻
I am so proud of the way this boy searched today. He was methodical, took direction well, and stayed obedient to odor. In addition to the nosework side of things, he was well-mannered in the staging areas as well as polite in the parking lot and toileting areas. His ability to settle in the car improved from the last trial too, which is big for me. I want him to be able to relax between searches because it’s not good for him or his performance to be “on” all day. I’m looking forward to more NW3 trials now! If I ever get into another one... 😭
I’m participating in Sara Brueske’s #100daysofdogtraining challenge. The goal is to post about behaviors, concepts, skills, etc. every day for 100 days. So today my dog training topic is nosework, of course. It’s a dog sport that everyone should try! It’s so beneficial for enrichment and building a stronger relationship with your dog. If you have questions about the sport of nosework, ask below! I’ll answer them to the best of my ability.
