Hi Kevin,

Yes that is called intelligent disobedience. If you train the scent work correctly and train the obedience correctly then you don’t ever have to train intelligent disobedience because the nature of it is that it is not a command, it is the dog thinking. If you train obedience using too forceful of methods or you never let the dog think in your training then the dog will likely not demonstrate intelligent disobedience, but if throughout training you give them opportunities to think for themselves then they will learn this on their own.
