The most helpful instructions: Shanna has been giving instructions after reviewing our nosework videos last few months. She picks a small behaviour change from our dogs we missed during our searches, and gave us what to work for and how to achieve our goals. I personally could not believe the improvement my shy little dog made under Shanna’s instructions. I highly recommend video reviewing by her when you have a green dog or you have been doing nosework for a while and your team has a specific goal.

Shanna’s video analysis is absolutely fantastic. She finds changes in behaviour of your dog that you miss while doing a search. Shanna also helps you as a handler, explaining how you might be crowding your dog, getting in the way of your dog, unknowingly disrupting air flow making the search more difficult for your dog; along with tips in leashes and leash handling. Jake had quit working in searches and I lost a lot of my confidence as a handler. With Shanna’s help, Jake is starting to search again and I’m feeling more confident too. Regardless of where you are in nosework, I highly recommend Shanna and her video training.

Shanna is an excellent instructor who is able to explain nosework fundamentals in a detailed and progressive manner before the introduction of targeted exercises. She restricts the number of students per class in order to provide extensive individual attention with abundant positive energy. Shanna seems to have endless patience for coaching! Feedback from Shanna is very supportive and instills confidence in both beginner and advanced teams. I find that she can discern the smallest problematic detail in searches that results in an immeasurably improved performance. I would recommend these classes unreservedly.
