Content: This 6-week session is the next level progression after the Novice Nosework class. We change the game from hunting for food to learning to identify and search for a target odor. We focus on building dog/handler teamwork by improving the handler’s observation skills and the dog's communication skills to the handler when the the target odor is located. The team will learn to navigate more intricate and challenging training scenarios.
Prerequisite: Dogs must be age appropriately vaccinated; Dogs must be healthy including being free from internal and external parasites (including fleas, ticks, worms, etc); Dog & Handler must have completed Novice Nosework at least twice.
Schedule: Classes meet once a week for 6 consecutive weeks on the same day of the week and at the same time all 6 weeks unless otherwise noted. The length of each class is 45 minutes.
