Introduction to Nose Work Class
If your dog enjoys smelling things they can have fun doing it as a sport. Dogs of all shapes and sizes can participate. It mentally challenges your dog and they are more focused and balanced. This is a fun sport for you and your dog.
We begin training the dogs to search for food or a toy, depending on your dog’s desire. We use boxes to begin with and then move to various containers as the dogs realize the search is not about the environment but the food or toy.
While your dog is learning to search, you learn the body behavior of your dog. We show you how to read your dog and learn to trust their behavior. Safety is always important in training so we show you how to be safe while searching.
