This workshop provides an opportunity to explore the connection between humans and animals in scent detection, emphasising an individualised approach. The training tasks will be organized around four key aspects: Motivation Focus Commitment to odour Autonomy & collaboration Each skill task will be customised for your specific team, with a limit of four teams per workshop. Strengthening the human-animal bond in scent detection can increase success, confidence, and teamwork. Sandra Raw, with a master's Degree in Anthrozoology, focused her research on training her dog for Bat conservation detection. Collaborating closely with Louise Wilson and her remarkable dogs, Sandra's Master's thesis explored the human-animal bond in scent detection dog training. In addition to her academic pursuits, Sandra has been actively involved in anti-poaching efforts in South Africa for the past 11 years. During her visits, she conducts training sessions for dogs in Blood Tracking and Tracking, combining practical detection skills with her role as a Clinical Animal Behaviorist (a full member of the APBC). This dual perspective enhances handlers' ability to interpret their dog's body language, strengthening their team's bond.
