Teaching A Dog To Find An Object

The object of teaching a dog to search for an item is to ensure that he has the ability to retrieve property or give an indication to the propertys location or area. A dog relies on finding property by means of using his or her nose using airborne scent and therefore a dog should be trained to make use of his scenting powers through his nose, rather than his sight.

The success of a dog, searching exercises depends to a great extent on the owners ability to observe the dog correctly and interpret the indications of the dog in tracing air-borne scent. This is viewing the dogs body language, head position and if possible the drawing of air in through the nose.

In the early stages of searching for property or an item, it may be found that the dog may search a larger area than is necessary, in his or her enthusiasm to locate the article or property. Although not really a fault in later stages of training when a larger area needs to be searched, the dog should be encouraged in the early stages to search a small area and so locate the article quickly and gain immediate praise and confidence.
