We are very fortunate that Dana Zinn, CNWI and founding faculty of NACSW came to Colorado and had the vision to start K9 Nose Work© back in 2008. She has literally created a Colorado K9 Nose Work© community that has hundreds of members at all levels of competition and has changed the lives of many dogs and humans in doing so.

Mountain Dogs is very excited, proud and humbled to present

 Dana Zinn, CNWI in workshop FRIDAY July 13, 2018. 

BUT IN A TRIAL ........

Have you ever said this to your instructor?  Or wondered why things happen in a trial situation that never seem to happen in training?  Well then this workshop is for you! 

Come take a journey with Dana into a world in which you can have more consistency with your training and trialing.  A world in which you have more tools to understand what your dog is telling you in the search to help you make better decisions as a handler. Continue to keep those lines of communication open and remind the dogs that we are always listening!

This workshop is for all levels of dogs but all dogs must be on odor. 

We will do as much video review and discussion as time permits.  Come prepared to take notes and expand your powers of observation.  This workshop is as much for the auditor as it is for the working teams.



Dana Zinn has been working with and training dogs since 1999. Her many years of dog training experience include working at the spcaLA as an Animal Behavior & Training Specialist. It was the time working with dogs in the shelter that drew her to the sport of K9 Nose Work®; not only for her own dogs, but for the many dogs in need of a “job” to do.
Dana was involved in the first publicly offered K9 Nose Work® class in Long Beach, CA. She not only participated but eventually assisted in instruction. From there Dana became involved in the development of the K9 Nose Work® instructor certification program. Dana was one of the first participants to be certified as an instructor for the K9 Nose Work® curriculum approved by the National Association of Canine Scent Work, LLC. She is proud to be a founding faculty member and a certifying official for sanctioned NACSW trials across the country. She recently became a Supervising Certifying Official, which means she is involved in the training of new COs for NACSW. Dana also helps with various projects within the NACSW Trial Department.
In regard to K9 Nose Work®, her learning never stops as she continues to teach classes, instruct at camps, and compete in trials. One of her proudest moments was placing first in the 2014 NACSW National Invitational.
Dana moved from California with her family to Golden, Colorado in 2008 and brought the sport of K9 Nose Work® with her. She has delighted in watching the growth of the sport in her community and around the country.
