What’s It About?
In this DVD we will see various games in which the dog must look for and fetch objects or food according to different methods: freely searching in its surroundings, controlled searching in a specific area and backtracking.
Nosework is the only activity that allows the dog to live instincts and use his natural abilities in such an enjoyable way for both himself and his human companion; this helps the dog to find balance and self-confidence and to develop a relationship of serene cooperation with his owner who will discover a new understanding of his dog and of its singular capabilities.
About the Presenters
Anne Lill Kvam’s passion for working with dogs began in 1986 when she trained her dog for search and rescue. Student of Turid Rugaas’s school, she has worked in Angola for the “Norwegian Peoples Aid” organization for the clearing of the anti-man mines. She was responsible for the instruction of the dogs and their conductors as well as supervisor in the operations of mine removal. Since returning to Norway she has managed her dog training school “Troll Hudeskole” and has become a highly requested speaker in particular as an expert in scent discrimination.
Turid Rugaas has been working with dogs for more than forty years. At the end of the ’80s, along with her colleagues Stale Odegard, she studied, described and systematized “Calming Signals” in the dogs. Her books and videos on the subject in their numerous translations have been, and are, amongst the best sellers in the specific field where they constitute recognised points of reference all over the world.
