Description: Nosework is a fairly new dog sport that has been spreading rapidly across the country. It is based on detection dog training. Nosework dogs search out various odors (such as Birch, Anise and Clove) and are rewarded when they find the odor. Searches start out easy at the beginning level and progress in difficulty. This class will teach your dog how to recognize the first odor, Birch, and how to develop the drive to search starting with food and odor paired with food. Cost of class includes starter nosework kit.

This is a six week class with 1 hour lessons.

Prerequisites: Dogs should have basic obedience training like sit, down and come. Dogs should be able to be crated when they are not working.

Cost: $120.00 Inactive members/non-members, $90.00 Active members
