Questions From the Crowd - Winter 2023 Pt 2

What to listen for:

“How well does the dog actually understand target odor? Part of the issue is that we think we've taught the dog to alert on a birch container. But in some cases, if you don't train with distractions enough, for instance, the dog is going to alert on what they think is just the non-empty box. So what you think you’re training may not be what you’re training.”

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Dames of Detection, Robin Greubel, Stacy Barnett, and Crystal Wing! In this 98th episode of K9 Detection Collaborative, Robin and Stacy take on the second chunk of the questions from the crowd.
