DAWG GONE GOOD

The Intro to K9 Nose Work 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 and their love of toys or food rewards. Nose Work starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a favorite treat or toy reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. Week one is primarily an evaluation class and teaches the overall game. The remaining weeks work on building foundation skills to help the handler read the dog and to build the dogs' intensity for the game.
