Nosework classes are currently for ongoing students only.
Who should come? Any dog, of any size, age, shape or color. Must have a nose!
(Currently no entry level Nosework classes are available)
What will we learn? This class will introduce dogs and handlers to the awesome game of Nosework! Dogs of any age, size, breed can play! Nosework helps build confidence and provides a structured opportunity for dogs to do what they do best: SNIFF!! No prior experience in any dog sport is required. Dogs will be introduced to odor right away using a marker- based system. In addition, students will learn about odor hygiene, proper use of equipment, basic searching concepts, hide placement, searching behaviors, scent theory and odor obedience. Dogs who have only been searching for food, or food paired with odor, should register for this class.
This class is appropriate for dogs of any age, breed, size, or physical ability and handlers of all ages and abilities. It can benefit dogs that lack confidence, dogs that are reactive around other dogs and/or people, convalescing dogs, dogs with anxieties that may prevent them from joining other group training classes, dogs with hearing or sight impairments, and retired conformation, competition, service, or working dogs in need of a "job".
