Scent Work
 Level 1 Friday Jan 6th at 6pm CLASS FULL
Level 1 Saturday Jan 7th 9am
Level 2 Sunday Jan 8th at 4pm

 Sniffing is one of the most natural and rewarding behaviors for dogs. Professional and competitive scent detection uses the dog’s incredible olfactory abilities and love of hunting while building a partnership based on trust and communication.

 In this set of classes, you and your dog will learn to search for the 3 essential oils used in competition. We will build your dog’s ‘odor obedience’, your understanding of ‘in odor behavior’, your ability to ‘read your dog’, your knowledge of how odour interacts with the environment, and how to handle odour and set simple hides.

Suitable for dogs 6month and up.

​​6 Week Set of Group Classes $235 (includes starter odour kit)

Classes are approx. 60 to 75min.

Class taught by Pam Koiner of Nosydogz
