Dog-Driven patterns give the dog a task to do in the absence of odor. We will add Possession games at the end of the day. Does your dog find odor and walk away? Build value for odor using a variety of games. This workshop is appropriate for all levels. We will run from experienced dogs first down to pairing dogs.
