Hello Scent clubbers
Over the introduction we will introduce some training term to give you the science behind scent work and so we can explain the process.
There are two types of search we will train
Passive search - the dog identifies a scent (Kong, cloves and gun oil) and indicates with their nose close to the scent.
Active search - the dog identifies a scent (catnip, Valerian root and your smell acetic acid or smelly feet) picks up the item and returns it too you.
you need to decide your active and passive search cues some suggestions below (we need a new cue if you have used one before choose another)
Active = go find, find it, go look,
passive = show me,
