Introduction to Nose Work
K9 nosework classes encourage dogs to use their natural instinct of scenting. These classes can be used to build confidence for shy or timid dogs and a great way to exercise high drive dogs. Dog reactive dogs who can be safely crated in the presence of others are welcome. Older dogs and even handicapped dogs can participate in this sport.
Dogs must be crated to participate in nose work. Your dog does not need to be quiet in the crate. Dogs can be housed in the daycare room, students may bring their own crates or keep dogs in their cars (weather permitting).
Students should bring their dogs with a 6 foot leash, preferably on a buckle, martingale or prong collar and lots of high drive treats (chicken, steak, hot dogs, cheese etc). If your dog prefers toys over food, please bring several of his/her favorite toys as well.
This course is offered at a discounted introductory price!
