Our nose work classes are generally split up into the following topics:
Drive Building - This all level nose work class focuses on building the dogs drive, problem solving ability, and confidence. It is perfect for dogs brand new to the sport or veterans looking for an edge in competition by reinforcing their foundation. New dogs, after we build their drive and understanding in this class, should move on to the “patterns & handling” class or do both classes.
Patterns and Handling - This class is designed for dogs that are already on odor (birch, anise and/or clove) who want to move on to learning about correct handling and strategies for approaching search areas. All four elements will be covered (Vehicles, Containers, Interiors, Exteriors) as well as mechanical skills (Reward timing/placement, Leash Handling, Footwork).
$20 per dog per class. Generally due at the first class of the month for however many weeks we have class that month (for example, if we have 3 Tuesday classes, it would be $60 due on the first Tuesday that we have class).
Classes subject to cancelation if they do not have enough sign ups.
