Open to dogs of all ages and abilities. No previous training is necessary.
This class is designed to start dogs on the path to nosework competition sponsored by National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW). The first 6 weeks of class develop hunting techniques by allowing dogs to find food placed in one of a group of boxes. In the second 6 weeks, this food is paired with birch odor, the first of the NACSW target scents.
Dog is freely and eagerly searching for paired food and odor.
