K9 NOSE WORK CLASSES

Inspired by working detection dogs, K9 Nose Work is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people. This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs, and provides a safe way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.

ALL LEVELS NOSEWORK

Each 90 minute class is limited to 6 students to give you the opportunity to work your dog and still take advantage of the critical opportunity to learn by watching other dogs search.  If you have not yet
enjoyed the fun of letting your dog use their natural abilities to explore their world and build a connection with you, you will want to try this!  For those of you already "searching," we will continue to build on skills and problem solving strategies to deepen your
understanding and success.  Classes can accommodate dogs at all levels as each exercise will be modified and adapted to the team.

COMPETITION NOSEWORK

This class will work specifically on skills dogs and handlers need for competition.  Dogs should be on the three primary odors and may be working additional odors for their chosen organization.  Skills will include drive to odor, converging odor, height challenges, inaccessible hides, speed drills, and sourcing exercises!  All in a fun and motivating environment!

FOUNDATION NOSEWORK

This is your entry to fascinating world of scent detection and discrimination for sport and fun!  In this 6-week session, dogs redevelop their natural abilities in "seeing" the world through their noses.  Dogs will get practice in problem solving odor complexities to prepare for later introduction to odor.  Handlers will find this mentally challenging game just as tiring as strenuous physical activity for their sniffing companion.

NOVICE ODOR SKILLS

Dogs ready to start odor or recently introduced to odor will start working odor complexities in building their searching skills. The key goal in this class is to build unquestioning drive to odor and commitment to source. Through games and exercises, dogs learn to follow odor trails as they build their confidence and love of the find!
