Nosework is the only activity that allows the dog to live his instincts and use his natural abilities in such an enjoyable way for both himself and his human companion; this helps the dog to find balance and self-confidence and to develop a relationship of serene cooperation with his owner who will discover a new understanding of his dog and of its singular capabilities.
“The dogs that I trained in Angola were capable of finding anti-man mines that had been buried 20 cm underground 10 years earlier. A South African colleague told me about a dog who had signalled the presence of a mine at a distance of 30 metres. Why then are we surprised about Rambo’s excitement when the female who lives 4 kilometres away is in heat?”
There are many different ways to utilize a dog’s sense of smell but they are all based on the fantastic ability that they have to recognize a certain smell and distinguish it from all the rest.
All the activities are explained in a clear and thorough manner and can be taught to our dogs as a motivating and fun game or be used as a starting point for “professional” training as in Dog Units for search and rescue or for the police.
NOSEWORK - TRACKING
In this DVD we will see tracking in detail, activities in which the dog must find and follow the scent of a certain person or animal (for example someone who is lost in the woods), ignoring all possible distractions in its surroundings and other scent trails that could disturb or interfere with the main one.
