Living with a dog who relentlessly scavenges food can be exhausting. Instead of enjoying relaxed walks with their dogs, dog owners are constantly scanning the environment for discarded food and feel frustrated as they have to fish something disgusting out of their dog’s mouth, yet again.

The problem is that scavenging is a deep-rooted, natural behaviour, making it much more challenging to train than other canine behaviours.

However, there is a structured food-avoidance training program that can help manage a dog’s scavenging behaviour in a kind, effective way - achieving long-term results without aversive training techniques.

In this presentation we are going to talk about:

• Why dogs love to scavenge

• Which methods you should avoid using

• How does force-free food avoidance training work

• What are the first steps when clients come to you with a “hoover dog”

• What are scavenging games and how can they help
