Leerburg Q&A
Ask your training question

Question: My dog is using his eyes and not his nose when doing nosework. What should I do?

Cindy, 

I bought your Nosework DVD, and I trained my dog. He did well in the first session, but the second session he started using his eyes to search in the drawer spots. For example, when I put the food in spot 3 after several times in spot 1 and 2 he just immediately went to three using his eyes and not his nose, then after that he lost interest. What should I do?

Cindy's Response:

If the dog is skipping to the 3rd spot you need to do a higher ratio of hides in the first spot so the dog thinks statistically it is worth their time to go check spot 1.

Depending on how tall your dog is, it may be beneficial to do your hides in the second tier of the drawers, a little higher off the ground, so the dog is less inclined to use their eyes instead of their nose.

If your dog is losing motivation to search there are several things you can do to maintain their interest. Make your sessions shorter, make your searches easier and make the reward greater.

Customer Comments

Hello,

I just got your "Establishing Pack Structure" DVD (ok technically video on demand), and I just wanted to say I really appreciate finding your site. This is the first time I've seen someone who recognizes that not all dogs are food motivated and yes, sometimes dogs will scream in the crate for more than the "30 minutes will wear them out" time frame. That and the advice makes sense to me makes me very happy to have found your site and info. (The good news is that I've done a lot of things right, but reestablishing the groundwork is the best place to start.)

Also your leashes are gorgeous. I got one along with some collars for my dogs (2 Akitas, (one we inherited after the first one had been ours for about 3 years, so, no, we didn't try "2 puppies at once")).

I'm looking forward to seeing how applying the lessons on the Pack Structure video works with my dogs, and then I'll see about moving on to other DVDs and training.

Thanks!

New Course! Detection / Nosework with Andrew Ramsey

Whether you train working detection K-9s, are interested in Nosework activities for your dog but don't know how to get started or are looking to add Nosework to your business, these are the courses for you. Andrew's system for training Nosework is both simple and highly effective. It blends concepts from the Military Working Dog Program with the use of a verbal mark, reward based training and cooperative play, to form a very clear and effective communication system that avoids many of the pitfalls of traditional programs. These courses explain how to engage your dog in the game of searching for a target odor and will teach the handler how to motivate, handle, read and reward your dog in order to build a strong working partnership as well as a focused response.
