Continuing Nose Work
Dogs must have completed Intro to Nosework or gotten approval to enroll in these classes.
Our 6-Week Course
In this class, we continue teaching the dogs to search for odor. We build skills and confidence in the dog and help the handler to learn to trust their dog. Eventually, over time, dogs are doing interior, exterior and vehicle searches. Dogs will eventually be able to search for three specific odors (birch, anise, clove). Practice in this class will help prepare the dog/handler team for the Odor Recognition Test (ORT) and Nose Work Competition through the National Association of Canine Scent Work and AKC or any venue.
Dogs must be able to sit quietly
Dogs must be able to wait comfortably in your car between search exercises.
Dogs must be secured in cars. Crates recommended.
