To enable your K9 to detect a target odor for which it has has been trained, he must locate the source of the scent.
You, as the handler, can assist your K9, only if you fully understand how your target odor is affected by the environmental conditions, by placing your K9 in the most productive locations.
Do you, as a handler, fully understand how the environment affects your target odor?
In this class, we will discuss hot, cold temperatures, wind, air currents, humidity, buried targets, ground disturbance, containerized, non-containerized targets, and scent masking, all that can affect your target odor.
