Introduction to Nose Work

Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. This class focuses on teaching our dogs how to develop their natural ability and desire to hunt for their favorite food or toy. It's a great class for you and your dog to have fun, build confidence, burn lots of mental and physical energy and improve your canine human bond. All levels- not yet on Odor. 

Introduction to Odor

This class advances our dog's natural scenting and hunting skills to search for a specific essential oil, also known as "target odors" including birch, anise or clove.  We focus on expanding our dog's scent discrimination skills while improving our handler skills of observation. Additionally, we introduce techniques and methods to improve dog/handler teamwork. High food or toy motivation is beneficial for this class.

Continuing Nose Work

Continuing Nose Work is for dog/handler teams that have completed Intro to Nose Work and Intro to Odor classes and have met minimum proficiency in finding the initial target odor with adequate team communication of the "find". This class will continue to develop handler skills and will introduce the .teams to additional target odor(s)


Advanced Nose Work/ Competition Prep

Advanced nose work is designed for experienced dog/handler teams and will expand both the handler's and the dog's understanding of the target odors and the concepts of nose work. This class is geared towards tactics, advanced handling and off-leash work. The teams will learn to navigate more intricate and challenging training scenarios 
Our Advanced Nose Work class may be combined with students working on Competition Prep. The Competition Prep class is for students that want to prepare for K9 Nose Work trials. Students must have either already competed in an ORT/ NW1 trial or have completed up through an Advanced Nose Work class taught by either a CNWI or an ANWI.
