Beginner to Intermediate Nosework
($115.00/7 Weeks) – Does your dog love to sniff? Have you ever wanted an outlet for your dog's sniffing? This class will give you the initial steps to teaching your dog to learn to search for targeted scents and introduce you to the idea of competing with your canine partner.

In this class the dog and the handler are taught how to search for a scent using treats. Handlers will be taught to watch their dog for the dogs natural cues that the dog has located the scent being targeted. The handler will learn how to properly allow the dog to be independent in their search and not to look for indications from the handler. Initially, searches will be limited to a certain amount of space/rooms, using boxes on the ground as well as other containers. Gradually, environmental objects will be added, increasing the amount of space used for the search, change locations (inside) for searches, adding elevation, all the while ensuring that the dog's desire to search is encouraged and developed. By the end of the course, dogs will be working and targeting the scent during searches. Please bring in your dogs crate (in non-winter month's dogs may be crated out of your car), LOTS and LOTS of good smelling treats your dog likes, and a 6 foot leash.

The Beginning Nose Work Class has a limit of 7 spots available. Once we are at the limit of the class, we will form a waiting list for additional classes/times. Reserve your space today!
