Please note: Because each dog works individually while the other dogs are outside of the room, dogs must
be able to be crated away from their handlers
or in a properly equipped vehicle.
K9 Nose Work - Level 1 (Intro to Nose Work)
Level 1 is a class for all dogs because they all have an inherently amazing sense of
smell and a natural desire to hunt. The class is designed to develop your dog's natural scenting abilities by using their
desire to hunt and their love for toys, food and exercise. It's a great way for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and
burn lots of mental and physical energy.
The primary goal of the class is to have fun!
For this class we do not require that dogs have any previous training experience, although good manners
are encouraged. We only require that your dog be capable of handling confinement during the class, either crated
away from their handlers or in a properly equipped vehicle.
Because all dogs work one at a time and are crated during down time, this is an excellent
class for dogs who are shy, dog reactive, or newly adopted. It's also a great class for dogs that need a lot of mental and
physical stimulation and are eager to continue their training. The Nose Work class will give your dog the opportunity to build
confidence in new environments, and work around obstacles without the stress of interaction with other dogs.
