K9 Sniffin' MT
Thank you Ron for sharing your knowledge and love for our dogs to make all our lives so much better
August 10-13, 2017
A fantastic time was had by all during the 4 day - 7 site seminar.
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.
July 28 & 29, 2018 Seminar with Sue Sternberg
