Intro to nose work class


Your dog loves to use his nose. The new sport of Nose Work lets you explore the world of scent with your best friend. You will learn how to interpret your dog’s signals, and your dog will learn how to show you that he has found a target odor.

For this class, we will be focusing on teaching your dog to recognize the odor of Birch Oil. Birch is the first target odor that dogs learn and is the first odor used in Nose Work competition. We will begin to teach your dog an “alert” behavior which is his signal to you that he has found the odor. We will also introduce you and your dog to short searches. 

You will begin to learn about how odor moves what we know about your dog’s amazing nose. We will teach you how to watch your dog and other class dogs so you know when they are close to or “in odor.” You will also begin to learn leash handling techniques.

All dogs 6 months and older may join this class.
