​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​What do you need for class?

  • Bring your dog on a flat collar or harness and a 4 to 6 foot leash (not a retractable leash).  No correction collars (choke, prong or shock) allowed.   
  • Bring LOTS of soft training treats such as Zukes or Liver Treats. Real chicken or cheese sticks (yes, cheese) work well too.
  • If class is close to meal time, you may want to only feed your dog half the meal.
  • For Puppy Class, bring your vaccination records.  Puppies must have at least one Distemper Combo shot.  Worried about vaccination status?  Here is the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior  (AVSAB)  Position Statement on Puppy Socialization.

​​​​​Intro to Nosework

Inspired by working detection dogs, K9 Nose Work is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people. This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs, and provides a safe way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.

K9 Nose Work starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. As your dog grows more confident with his nose, target odors are introduced, and competition skills are taught.

·         No prior training is required and no obedience is needed
·         In classes, dogs work one at a time and be kept separate                     between searches so reactive dogs can enjoy the activity, too
·         Shy or fearful dogs build confidence and overactive dogs put                      their energy into fun searches
  ·        Stronger bond between dog & handler as handler learns to                           observe, understand, and rely upon his dog.
