This is a continuation and requires successful completion of Level 1 and Level 2 of the Intro to Nose Work series. We will review container searches, continue interior searches and introduce vehicle searches and exterior outside searches.
Intro to Odor
This class introduces the odors selected for use in K9 Nose Work. We return to the basics of the search games starting with box work and a pairing of the odor with a treat or a toy. This class will only introduce the Birch Odor in the first series.
Intro to Nose Work Level 1
There is a new rapidly growing sport called K9 Nose Work®. This 6-week class will follow the guidelines and suggestions of NASCSW. The objective is to introduce dogs and their owners to this new fun sport knows as K9 Nose Work®. The focus on all of our Nose Work classes will be for the dog and owner/handler to have fun.
Intro to Nose Work Level 2
This class builds on the foundation skills learned in Level 1 and focuses on skill building. We facilitate the building of the dog's intensity for the hunting game; eventually they will hunt for a particular odor. This class will use treats or toys depending on the dog.
This class is limited to people that have completed the Intro to Odor class. May also include students that have taken the Intro more than once and are already on more than one odor. The second odor, Anise and the third odor, Clove are introduced independently. Part of the focus will be on fine-tuning the handler's techniques.
