My Dog won't listen & Doggie Scent work

Taking your dog for a walk should be a joy, not a hassle. Pups who pulls, lunges, leaps, and squirms this class is for you. We’ll work on heeling, leash control and response to distractions through the use of working with scent discrimination!

"Find It"

We first teach the idea of ""find it" by putting a treat in one of your closed fists.  Offer both to the dog, when he/she sniffs that one with interest, mark the moment by saying "yes" and open the hand to allow access to eat the treat.  Repeat, switch hands until dog seems to "get it". Most dogs offer their own signal, such as a bark, sit or paw.  When your dog finds the treat hand, say "yes" and then ask for the indicator before the reward --find it, yes, sit, treat.  After several times of doing this, change when you give the marker sound to after the indicator find it, sit, yes, treat.   
We work on knowing when to ask for more behavior before adding another step. Once we master the beginings of "find it" we substitute items or people.  We increase and work on "Finding" by scent

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
