K9 AKC Games
The K9 ABC Games™
We offer the K9 ABC Games™. K9 ABC Games is another opportunity to work with your dog in Nose Work. These games provide an inclusive search to test your handling skills and the scenting skills of your K9 partner as "the team".
Choose from Single Odor (only birch), Double Odor (birch & anise &/or combined) and Triple Odor (all 3 odors separately and/or the combination). Please note: you must have completed that particular course (Intro to Odor: Birch, Continuing Odor: Anise & Clove). However once completed Continuing Odor, you are able to enter into any odor at any time, it's not considered consequtive odors.
K9 ABC GAMES are both a skill builder and a skills assessment tool. The skill building goal is accomplished by providing a realistic search environment with multiple hides where stressless searches are performed.
The judge provides detailed feedback from his/her observations to help identify areas to focus on in practice sessions. In order to further support teams assessing their skills and skills development over time, the K9 ABC Games system maintains detailed records of every search performed in terms of which hides and odors were found or not found, false alerts and faults. To that end, handlers can access their statistics at any time on the web’s based system for a breakdown of success rate by odor (#odor), odor combination, category (#category) (aka elements), false alerts distribution by category, as well as legs and titles earned.
