K9 NOSE WORK CLASSES

 

INTRODUCTION TO K9 NOSE WORK

Over this first 6 week class, we will introduce your dog to the art of hunting, boxes and the “primary reward."  Primary reward gives your dog the opportunity to find food without handler involvement and will build canine confidence.

Objectives:

  • Build your dog’s drive to hunt

  • Build your dog’s independence and confidence

  • Teach your dog the importance of boxes and containers

  • Build the handler's observation skills:  recognize when your dog is hunting
