K9 Tracking – Decreasing Odor in Concentration Tracks

As our working dogs gain understanding as to what we want from them, we increase the difficulty in the track. Adding turns and decreasing odor are just a few of the ways to make our concentration tracks more difficult. In this session, the dog has already been introduced to turns and we have lessened the […]

K9 Tracking – Increasing Difficulty in Concentration Tracks

In tracking or scent work, we expect the dog to rely on their nose and not their vision. In some cases, we have to teach the dog to actively sniff and not just drive forward. As we progress with concentration tracks we will increase the difficulty by adding turns and decreasing the scent. This will […]

K9 Tracking – Teaching the Scent Picture with Concentration Tracks

There are several steps in teaching a working dog to track. In previous videos we introduced a dog to tracking with puppy tracks. The next step is to move the dog to concentration tracks. Concentration tracks are tracks with a lot of odor that will teach the dog their scent picture. In this phase it […]

The Importance of Testing the Functionality of K9 Teams – Part 2

Working Dog Tracking Basics – Controlling your Dog’s Drive

Working Dog Tracking Basics – How to Introduce Your Dog to Tracking

Working Dog Trainer & Handler Presence – How Your Dog Responds Starts with You

K9 Detection Training – How Your Line Work Sets Your Dog Up For Success

In K9 detection or nose work training, the goal for the handler or trainer is to have as minimal influence on the dog as possible. We want the dogs to be confident and independent so that they do not need us at all to locate the odor and source. To reach this level of independence […]

K9 Detection Training – Imprinting a Green Dog

When training a dog for any kind of detection or nose work it is important to make sure the dog understands how to work the odor. We want the dog to hunt and rely on their nose or olfactory system, not eyesight alone. In this stage of the imprinting process we have already started to […]
