Today, Stacy, Robin, and Crystal unpack another five listener questions and scenarios that were originally sent in on Ask A Stupid Question Day back in September.
“How do you work an area with residual odor?” (01:41)
“My dog is a field-trained spaniel and is very good at nosework (lavender, eucalyptus, and anise) for Danish competition standards. Now we are following another program parallel to our nosework training to learn water search on cadaver scent. The search area is marked with markers (‘yellow balls’). They’re floating on the surface of the water. My dog is overexcited over these, and the stimulus for these markers seem to overrule all search drive. Could you elaborate on what goes on inside of my dog and what solutions can overcome such a distraction?” (13:04)
“How do you keep your classes fresh and fun?” (24:01)
“What is the best way to catch oneself queuing the dog when solo training?” (35:11)
“Do you have any tips for training AKC Buried Hides?” (46:11)
