Odor Imprinting/Trained Final Response Workshop

Dec 2, 2022 8:00 AM

This is a 4 hour block of training focused on the very foundation of everything we do in detection work- imprint a target odor! There are various tools we can use to enhance a dog’s stimulation and focus such as Dopamine Boxes, Scent Wheels, and Puppy/Big Dog tubes. There are many roads that lead to Rome and sometimes we adjust to the needs of the dog that is front us. We have techniques such as odor impregnated towel retrieve, scent boxes, and direct reward training methods. But once the dog is imprinted- how do they let you know they have found the source of odor? This workshop will give you the skill set to start that clear communication between you and your pup with a Trained Final Response (TFR)! If you already have a TFR, (IE, a look back at you, sit, etc.)- you should absolutely attend so we can clean that skill up to make it crisp and clear! ***This workshop is designed to start you on the path to odor recognition and it will take many reps for the imprinting to be complete. It is highly unlikely that your dog will be fully imprinted on odor but you will now have a map on how to get there!*** Odors other than the common Nosework scents *(narcs, EDD, etc) are allowed with prior notice

Would you like to host a workshop?

Our workshops are ready to hit the road and we are more than willing to do so. Hosts are required to find a suitable training venue that meets the needs of the desired goals. Schools (both public and private), large buildings with offices, or a large warehouse are great venues for hosting a seminar. Hosting a workshop allows you train with the Scentsable K9 without traveling to us. Please submit a form and let us know you’d like to host a workshop.
