SUNDAY
From the Outside In: A Behavioral View of Your Nose Work Dog

with Sue Sternberg

3 topics in one day!
A Nose Work Ethogram. Sunday AM. An Ethogram is a catalog of species-specific behavior, and Sue has created a Nose Work-specific Ethogram by watching hundreds of hours of footage of dogs searching and categorizing the most common discrete behaviors. By watching in fast and slow motion, she can train your eye to notice more during every search. Come be the Jane Goodall of scent work!

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Dog Elimination and More. Sunday AM. We watch our dogs eliminate multiple times a day, and yet do we really study it? We miss an amazing opportunity to study dog behavior and body language when we take elimination for granted. Luckily, Sue has been filming and studying the way dogs sniff and pee and poop and scratch and all the behaviors leading up to the event and topping it off as well! 

If you're a Nose Work enthusiast, you may occasionally have problems with your dog being distracted during a search. Usually this happens more in outdoor searches than anywhere else, and when it happens, the possibility exists for a dog to urinate or urine mark when we would rather he be searching for clove, anise or birch. 

What, exactly, does a dog look like when he is about to lift his leg? What, exactly, does a dog look like just before he poops? What, exactly, does a dog look like when he's absorbed in sniffing where another dog has been, as opposed to sniffing what you want him to sniff? What does "crittering" look like? Is it the same as sniffing dog odor?

Come learn more than you really wanted to know about a dog's behaviors with other dogs: marking and elimination!

Dog to Dog Reactivity--Training Tips and Management Skills. Sunday PM. (1:30pm-5:00pm) While the sport of Nose Work welcomes and has woven into its teaching protocols dogs who are reactive with other dogs, not much is actually taught about how to navigate and maneuver through the world with a barking, growling and lunging dog. 
While keeping a comfortable distance from other dogs can help, there is a lot more we can do to prevent the eruption of dog-dog reactivity or aggression. 
In this presentation, Sue will show what reactivity is, what dog on dog aggression looks like, and show training tips and management for ALL DOGS--not just the reactive ones.
