K9 Nose Work® – Intro to Odour

K9 Nose Work® – Intro to Odour is an introduction to odour nose work class based on the principles of K9 Nose Work® (more information on K9 Nose Work® here).

Building on the foundation skills learned in our Intro to K9 Nose Work® class, your dog will transition from searching solely for a food reward to searching for specific odours (Birch or Wintergreen). Dog and handler teams will continue to learn from each other – your dog will be encouraged to search independently and you will develop keen observation skills on your dog’s body language and behaviour when in the presence of odour. Hides that are unknown to the handler are introduced at this level. Teams will work both on- and off-leash in order to learn more advanced leash handling skills.

Requirements for Making Scents:

  • Our Intro to K9 Nose Work® class or an equivalent introduction to nose work class.
  • First set of core vaccinations. Titre test results are acceptable for adult dogs over 1 year old.
  • All dogs must be crated when they are not on the search area – no exceptions. If you need help crate training your dog, please email us or call Brigette at 604.522.1002.

Cost

The cost for K9 Nose Work® – Intro to Odour is $165 + GST.
