Cost:

Learn how cognition testing can enhance your knowledge about the dog in front of you. These cognition tests (brain games) will help you learn crucial information such as if your dog is strong in memory if he is a problem solver, how quickly he makes inferences, how easily he follows gestural communication, and your dogs’ laterality. These tests can even help law enforcement agencies and security firms select better, more trainable working K-9s.

This seminar is for everyone: whether you are a professional dog trainer in scent detection looking to enhance how you select dogs, or a nose/scent work handler or trainer trying to understand the dog you have.
