Dogs learn better when they are having fun!
Intro to K9 Nosework
Class Schedule: Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:00pm-7:00pm and Fridays 11:00am-12:00pm
Your dog will learn to use his natural scenting abilities to find hidden treats or objects and lead you to them. You won’t believe how fun it is to watch your dog’s light bulb come on in this low-impact sport designed for high-level mental stimulation.
Intro to Odor
More fun with your dog’s sniffer! This course will introduce your dog to one of the key Nosework scents used in competition—birch—while you build your ability to read your dog to help her refine her searching. We’ll begin to increase search difficulty, possibly even moving to outdoor and car searches as teams are ready
Continuing Nose-work 1 & 2
We’ll tackle more difficult searches while your dog works two new scents- anise and clove—and you build your handling skills to assist his success. We’ll also introduce the skills needed to compete in this sport.
Does your dog get nervous about nail trims, grooming, teeth cleaning and ear cleaning? Come learn how to teach your dog to be calm and comfortable during these procedures. Turn grooming into a fun training opportunity instead of a dreaded task.
