NOSE WORK (ADVANCED)
Dogs 1 year old and up
Must have had prior training at an intermediate level
Nose Work is a fun search and scent game for dogs and handlers. This easy to learn activity and competitive sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs, and provides a great way to keep them exercised both physically and mentally. It starts with teaching your dog to use his or her nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat hidden in a variety of environments. As the dog progresses, hide n’ seek challenges increase, and specific scents are targeted. And, you’ll love seeing your dog happily win the game and find the hidden object!
The dog will refine their sense of smell and will eventually develop broad and solid scent detection skills.
WHAT TO BRING
Bring a 6 ft leash (no retractable leashes), properly fitting collar or harness, two or three of your dog’s favorite toy (all the same and not ‘huge’ – tennis ball being largest size), treats (dog’s favorite, very high value treats), crate or another way to secure your dog when not working, and a happy, well-rested, and preferably slightly hungry dog.
