NWB1, Introduction to Nose Work, is the first of the two core beginner courses for K9 Nose Work(R).  In this course we'll begin teaching your dog to search/hunt independently and with purpose.  We'll work containers and interiors, two of the four standard search elements.  The other two elements are exteriors and vehicles and we'll get to those soon enough!  : )  In this course you'll also begin to learn your dog's hunt style.  You'll be working on and off leash.  Only one dog will search at a time, while the others are crated.  Crates and exercise pens are provided.  Please bring water/bowl and yummy treats or favorite toy to reward your dog.  Be prepared to be amazed and to have fun.  Your dog will love it!  K9 Nose Work(R) is a wonderful outlet for your dog's energy, both mentally and physically, yet it's easy and interesting for the handler.  6 weeks/$120
