Basics for the dog I have in this class is learning that this is a fun game to play with Mom. Bryce knows odor but it’s just not important enough for him. He didn’t get the opportunity to learn it the ‘traditional’ way so he’s not solid on the primary or basic skills of searching. So Back to Basics for him is learning to search and anticipating the joy that a ‘find’ is. He’s got boxes pretty much down, so we want to learn the basics of how to search other things.
