Readers use positive methods to bring out the best in their dogs.
I was so pleased to receive my August issue containing a piece (“Your Dog Nose No Bounds”) about scent training, K9 Nose Work, and specifically reference to Jill Marie O’Brien and Amy Herot. I am currently attending one of their classes and it is truly amazing work. The concept that I love the best is that, while most other dog activities are micromanaged by the human, scent work is the opposite, allowing the dog to be totally a dog and be rewarded for following her instincts! I cannot wait to take my other dogs through the program.
