Mental Prep for Nose Work Competition

How many hours do you spend in physical training with your dog? Now, how much time do you spend in mental training and preparation? If you’re like most canine competitors, you may spend many hours per week depending on the time of year to train you and your dog to increase your skills for your canine sport. You likely use good equipment and practice proper technique. However, if you’re like most, you don’t practice training your mind. This class will work specifically on mental preparation for competition. We will have lecture, exercises and working dogs. Topics will include goal setting, self assessment, visualization, concentration and dealing with anxiety.
