With over 10 years' experience of conducting behavior consultations, teaching and competing in K9 Nose Work, and being a professional K9 handler with Midwest Conservation Dogs, I am excited to offer remote coaching for nose work teams who want to reach their goals. Whether you are looking to fine tune your handling, looking for diagnostic troubleshooting for a particular challenge you and your dog are facing, or just looking for some new training exercises to have fun with, I'm here to help!
How Nose-E-coaching works:
You share specific goals you have for your nose work team. (e.g. helping your dog work thresholds more thoughtfully, working better corners/deep areas, getting a stronger at-source behavior)
You share up to 3 videos of your current dog working a nose work search that are relevant to your goals. Videos from trials or blind searches are often useful to help reveal issues you may not see during training. Your videos must be available online and links are emailed to me at least 3 days before our meeting so I have ample time to prepare and offer you the best service during our appointment.
On our appointment day, we will connect via Google Hangouts Meet, an online web-conferencing platform, to review your videos in detail. A custom link will be sent to you for our online meeting and you'll need access to a computer that has audio and video streaming capabilities.
During our meeting, I share observations and constructive critique of your team's search given your goals. This may include pausing the video at certain points and walking you through step-by-step points and diagramming possible solutions.
At the end of each e-coaching session, we'll discuss exercises you can set-up for you and your dog.
Cost: $55 per 30-minute session
