Introduction to K9 Nose Work


Whether you want to trial with NACSW or AKC, or just want a fun game to play with your dog - this is where it all starts. We use primary rewards (food or toy) to teach your dog a conditioned search. Your dog will develop focus, confidence and problem-solving skills, while you learn his body language during the search. 

Great for shy, young, or reactive dogs, since dogs are crated between runs and work one at a time. Nose work is truly the activity and sport for any dog and any person. No obedience required - nose work is a "no obedience zone."

Instructor: Beth Ann Sabo, CNWI, CPDT-KA. Location: Barrier Islands Center, Machipongo, VA. 5 weeks - $130.
