Default The alert/'tell' (more nosework/scentwork stuff)

No, I'm not obsessed.

Ok, so I am not sure how it nosework compares to other scent related sports. But how did you guys go about developing your dog's alert? Did you train something specific or just watch the dog for its natural 'tells'?

I had been trying to work on getting Mia to paw at the source, however my trainers have said they both do (and recommend) just learning your dog's 'tells' and observing for their natural alerts. It seems much more difficult that way. I want something very clear and absolute. It seems like when I see real working dogs doing any kind of detection work they have the dogs perform a behavior once they detect their odor.
