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

NWB1 is the first of two foundation courses in the K9 Nose Work® series and sets the stage for beginning handler skills as well as building the dog's drive to search.   Almost all dogs love nose work!  It is something they do naturally, and for once we have a team sport in which they get to be the lead partner.  Through nose work they get to use their own talents, their own way, and we learn to read and recognize their body language and signature alert.  K9 Nose Work® is based on drug and bomb detection dog work except that no one is ever in danger in this sport.  Nose work uses lots of mental energy and is a great boredom buster and confidence builder for the dog!  It can be played anytime, anywhere.  All dogs are invited to try nose work as every dog is crated or in an ex-pen between searches so that the environment is always safe for each dog.  Even anxious dogs learn to safely forget their worries as they focus on finding the source of the target odor!  You may participate in Nose Work as a fun hobby or as a competitive sport.
