Ron Gaunt

August 10-13, 2017

A fantastic time was had by all during the 4 day - 7 site seminar.

Observing change of behavior in the nose work dog

It's our human nature to take a learning thing and turn it into a performance thing

Nose work is built for you to learn

the mindset of the dog

SCENE : Ron Gaunt Workshop -
(1st timer team - virginal to Nose Work)

Handler: After a search gone awry (as they often do) asks this iconic man
     "I was thinking...blah blah blah"

Ron: Head drops with a sigh and slow nod of 'not this again'
               "Cut that shit out."

Handler: Baffled, waiting for a pearl of wisdom, eyes eager and wide, leaning in 
              "Cut what shit out?"

Ron: Like a cowboy in his puff of smoke looks you square in the eyes
               "That thinking shit"

Little did I know those years ago that gritty sand about 'not thinking shit' was the greatest pearl of wisdom I would ever receive in K9NW.
