About this Seminar

This webinar will look at when and how to start a team on blank searches.

Her focus will be on foundation work but the information is also useful for the experienced team who wants to build more confidence in this area. Dorothy will also explore the benefits and pitfalls of searching blank areas for the dog and handler.

Meet the speaker/s

Dorothy Turley, CNWI, CPDT-KA
Dorothy is a professional, full-time dog trainer in the Olympia, Washington area. Her business, Let’s Talk Dogs, specializes in pet dog training, behavior issues and K9 Nose Work®. She began dog training as a hobby in 1995 and quickly became involved with rescue and education work as a volunteer. She eventually transitioned to training others and quit her day job in 2002 to pursue dog training as a full-time professional.

Dorothy teaches classes, private lessons and also hosts educational seminars and workshops. She has also traveled as the working assistant to Kathy Sdao, MS, CAAB (Bright Spot Dog Training). She is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) and a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI) and continues her education by attending seminars and workshops. She has graduated from the Dogs of Course Instructor training, CNWI instructor training and 3 sessions of Bob Bailey’s “Chicken Camp.” Over the years she has also volunteered and worked at her local shelters and various rescue groups.

In early 2010 Dorothy attended her first K9 Nose Work® seminar with Ron Gaunt. She was hooked. She knew this was a great activity that she wanted to share it with her clients. She began working with her dog and car reactive dog, Zoey, and never looked back. She had no plans to compete with this particular “problem” dog so was thrilled when Zoey not only earned her NW1 title but also took first place. Dorothy is now a Supervising/Elite Certifying Official for the NACSW™. She is also an experienced trial and ORT host, National Trial Coordinator, Trial Representative and Score Room Lead for the NACSW™. She shares her life with her husband and 3 dogs (all mutts) in Rochester, Washington. She is currently trialing with her Chihuahua mix, Brigette, at the NW3 level. Dorothy and Zoey had the honor of attending the National Invitational in November, 2017. Though mostly retired at age 14, Zoey still enjoys the occasional Summit or EST trial.

Rules and Considerations
  • Dogs of Course and the speaker have done their best to provide you with a quality product. However there are factors of running and taping a live webinar that beyond our control that can impact the overall quality. You should expect degraded video viewing to some degree due to the nature of running video live over the internet. 
  • The quality of the presentation video is contingent partially on your computer operating system, your internet connection and the bandwidth available. Even with high speed internet video can/will lag or stutter a bit.
