Date: 21st & 22nd July 2018
Location: High Bickington Community Centre
This isn’t just any old “match and sample” workshop. We will be concentrating on visual, audio, scent and sensual skills to really stretch you and your dogs ability to work as a team and problem solve. There are many games that can be played using cognitive skills, using memory skills and much more.
This workshop is for dogs over 8 months of age (due to brain development). Some targeting skills would be useful, but not essential and each handler must be familiar with marking behaviour whether by clicker or verbally.
We will be working with targeting via feet or nose, indicating skills for when the dog has found what we’re looking for and indicates it to the handler, discrimination skills (visual, sensual, scent and audio) as in “it’s not that one, or that one, but THIS one”!
These are very impressive skills for your dog to have and can help in many other ways, such as behaviour, and general well being.
Unique match and sample using the part of the brain, responsible for problem solving.
Learning new skills that help your dog in all manner of ways, whether behaviourally or general peace of mind.
Improve your dogs cognitive abilities and stave off dementia.
Lots of fun for you and your dog.
