K9 Nose Work® 1 – Intro to Nose Work

Location:  Pioneer Park Center (1331 Talbot Court)

Activity #165024

Click here to register online.

K9 Nose Work® is a new and fast-growing scent detection sport for companion dogs and is inspired by the training and work of law enforcement detection dogs.  The sport develops your dog’s natural hunting and scenting abilities to find target odors for fun or competition.  Any dog breed (or mix), any age, activity level, or physical abilities can participate.  Because only the working dog is in the working area during a search, dogs that are uncomfortable around other dogs or those with environmental issues can learn and thrive in this new sport.  An obedient dog is not necessary!  All dogs must be able to be “car crated” or quietly wait their turn in a covered crate inside.  Owners must provide crates and covers if crating indoors.  Students may run up to two dogs.  One class fee per dog.  Dogs must be up to date on vaccinations.  The first class is a NO Dogs Class.

Session 1:  NACSW Skills Challenge 2024 – Set Up and Video

The NACSW Skills Challenges are a great way to build foundation skills while earning titles for your dog.  Finding the space and time to complete the challenges on your own can be a challenge in itself!  The Elemental Dog, LLC will set up all four skills challenges each week over the first 3 weeks.  Each week will be a different level progressing from Level 1 through Level 3.  The fourth week is available to redo any skill and level from the previous weeks.  Students are strongly encouraged to practice each of the skills at the appropriate level before class.  Only limited coaching will be available due to time constraints.  All odors (birch, anise, and clove) will be used.  Even if you compete in venues other than NACSW, these foundational skills are essential.  Fee:  $120 per dog/handler team (includes videos)
