One of the biggest challenges at the higher levels of nose work competition is knowing when to stop. People often ask themselves, “Is my dog really done searching?”, “Are we missing something?”, “Have we been everywhere?”, “Why did he just look at me? Did I miss something?”. So many questions run through our minds as we near the end of a search that cause us to delay saying finished.

Join Dana in this one-and-a-half-hour webinar to tackle some of these questions and help you become better observers to get to the answers. Some of the things we will discuss are:

* Recognizing when your dog is working a hide they have yet to find, or if it’s odor moving through the area in a new and interesting way
* What happens in searches that make us question whether the dog is done or not
* Varying ways dogs communicate with us after all hides have been found
* How search logistics play into our mindset

Through video and discussion, Dana will give you lots of information and, of course, a lot to think about.

Let saying “Finished” stop the clock, not your heart!
