Combining Nose-work with Animal Centred Education (ACE) Techniques
An introduction to nose-work and Animal Centred Education (ACE) Techniques. Giving insight into aspects of growing trust and building teamwork between guardians and their four legged companions.
Whether you are one person seeking to learn more about your furry family member, or you are working with dogs, as a dog walker, carer, trainer, behaviour consultant, or rescue worker. These two day workshops offer the opportunity to meet with like minded people, to share and grow your tacit knowledge, whilst adding more valuable tools into your toolbox.
These are learning and exploring days with the emphasis on nose-work and related skills. If you have never done nose-work before, then this is a great place to start. If you are already a nose-work addict, then come along and learn a few new twists to add to your skills. You and your dog will receive massive benefits over the course of the two days.
Dogs of any age can take part and no previous experience is necessary. Dogs who may not be comfortable around other dogs, or dogs that are sensitive in other ways can also be included, just contact me to talk over how we can provide a safe environment in which they can learn and enjoy the activity.
We concentrate on highlighting your dogs senses of smell and sensory awareness. We teach Animal Centred Education (ACE) Techniques. (as developed by Sarah Fisher) These explore the huge benefits of 'free work', develop your observational skills and introduce some of the Tellington Ttouch bodywork elements. Also incorporating games of engagement such as The Bucket Game and The Counting Game(as developed by Chirag Patel) We combine nose-work with all of the above and explain how to develop your handler awareness to set your dog up for success. Offering a firm foundation on which to build your dog detective skills.
Nosework - discovering how to harness your dog's primary sense and learn to work as a team. Observations - exploring ways to 'see' your dog and gather information. Skills - practical techniques to use on a day to day basis. Education - force free teaching, demonstrations and coaching. We combine these with Sense-ability. Sense-Ability is a code of practice that when used on a daily basis, will enhance your relationship with your canine companion and regularly set you both up for success.
