Introduction to Nose Work

From the first class of Introduction to Nose Work, your dog will enjoy success in nose work with exercises set up to motivate her to find a treat or toy. Using reward-based training, your dog will learn to focus on finding her toy or treats located throughout the training room, in spite of distractions. In addition, by carefully observing our dogs, you’ll learn how scent travels through the room.

Prerequisites: Your dog must be able to stay in a crate or your car without you, for parts of each class. No other obedience or specialized training of any kind is required to get started.

Equipment: Leash attached to a flat collar or back-clip harness. Excellent treats. If you think your dog may be more toy than food motivated, bring some extra special toys as well. Please provide your own crate, or the necessary equipment to keep your dog safe, cool, and secure in your car.
