Manners Minder Target Wan incorporated in Search Training
So I have not had any SAR training lately and I'll miss most of the SAR K9 training until May due to the SAR academy and today I had an idea.
We learned to put the Manners Minder Target Wand to use in obedience class. It's pretty much for directionals and I have to get two more for that.
Anyhow, she is rock solid on touching the Manners Minder with the nose on distance and today I actually re-called her, made her indicate and clicked my way to the re-find between the manners minder and me.
Once I get to work with a helper all the helper has to do is to hold the target wand in his hand and then gradually re-place the wand with the reward instead for the reward she searches for the Manners Minder Target Wand. That way I can work on the re-find at home.
It's a fantastic little tool.
