Beginning K9 Nose Work®
Nose work is fun for all breeds and sizes of dogs! It’s the one dog activity that gives all types of dogs an opportunity to be rewarded for something they already do . . . sniff and hunt. Handlers learn how dogs communicate while allowing their dogs to gain confidence playing nose work games. Whether you just want a fun activity for your dog or are competition-bound, nose work is perfect for you and your dog! Beginning Nose Work is for dogs that have not been introduced to the essential oil odors used in nose work competitions. Dogs build enthusiasm and drive for searching by looking for their favorite treat rewards and/or toys in boxes. Each handler learns effective ways to motivate his or her dog to search independently and become adept at reinforcing the dog’s success in finding the treats and/or toys. Dogs work one at a time, resting in crates or their cars between turns. This enables all dogs to become confident searchers in a low-distraction and stress-free environment. Prerequisites: No prior training required. Dogs must be able to handle confinement in their car or crate when not working. If your dog has separation anxiety, be sure to indicate that when you inquire about class openings.
