In this class, we will be building on the searching skills covered in scentwork one. Container searches will include a variety of objects and container styles. We will continue to build understanding and add challenge in interior searches including corners and ground hides. Leash handling and search planning will be discussed. Throughout this class we will be continuing to build duration and understanding of the alert behaviour learned in scentwork 1. Depending on the weather, we may introduce exterior searches.
