​​The Intro to K9 Nose Work for Fearful Fido's class introduces the concept of the game, builds handler observation skills and timing, and gets the dogs focused. This class will build on your dogs natural ability to hunt for toys or food rewards all while helping build confidence. Nose Work starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a favourite treat or toy reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms. The dogs work individually so they will not meet or see other dogs.Week one is primarily an evaluation class and teaches the overall game. In this course we will work on building foundation skills to help the handler read the dog and to build the dogs' intensity for the game where they can continue on to an Intro to Odour class where the dogs will learn to find a scent (target odour)
