Who should come? This class is for teams whose dogs are proficient in all three odors, and have some experience with the various search elements.
What will we learn? We will continue to build on skills with emphasis on leash handling, hide placement, introduction of multiple hides, introduction of elevated and inaccessible hides, blind searches and exposure to novel search areas whenever possible. For teams who are competing in nosework or scentwork venues, this class is best suited for teams entering or already competing at the NACSW NW2 or AKC Advanced levels. Although the class will focus on trial preparation, prior or ongoing competition experience is not necessary, and students who just play for fun are welcome at the instructorÃƒÂ¢€Ã¢â€žÂ¢s discretion.
Prerequisite: dogs must be able to crate comfortably while waiting their turn.
