Skill Building With Sock Games

Recording available NOW! 

(Holly Bushard presenter/ Julie Symons moderator) 

Skill-building with Sock Games-another tool for your nose work toolbox!

Sock Games are a perfect option for scentwork training when you are short on space or time. Join us to explore several layers of games and exercises that can be played with a collection of socks. Transform the most uninteresting spaces into a meaningful search area! Because of their portability, sock games are ideal for generalizing and taking your show on the road. This seminar will cover a dozen different ways to challenge your team and grow your skills. These games are silly and fun! You’ll love them!

Holly Bushard 

Holly started her extensive understanding of scent work with dogs as a narcotics dog handler with a police department.  She is now a judge, competitor and coach.  Having had the opportunity to work with many breeds doing nosework has made Holly not only a super handler but helps her understand the wide variety of challenges teams face.  As a judge with three venues (AKC, CPE, and NACSW) she has a clear understanding of what is expected at a competitive level.  Watching and helping teams enjoy the journey of nosework is sure to put a smile on her face and getting to be part of that. Holly loves watching joyful teams exploring and playing with all the challenges this game has to offer and getting to help them do better, with more joy is the icing on the cake for her!

Julie Symons

Julie has been involved in the dog world for over 25 years teaching and competing in a wide variety of sports. She's trained and competed in conformation, agility, obedience, herding and tracking as well as nosework.  Julie's teaching has focused largely on nosework since 2012 although her strong foundations in so many sports is apparent through much of her work. Creating versatile, positive and happy teams is her goal for each of you and her constant work to learn more and do better is apparent in everything she does.  Her simple truth? "People just really love their dogs and enjoy doing activities with them."  Julie always gives more than 100% of herself to her students learning and development.  Learn more about Julie here.
