Who should come? This class will introduce dogs and handlers to the awesome game of Nosework! Dogs of any age, size, breed can play!
What will we learn? 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.
Prerequisite: dogs must be able to crate comfortably while waiting their turn.
