K9 Nose Work® 1 – Intro to Nose Work 

Location:  Pioneer Park Center (1331 Talbot Court)

Activity #165024

Click here to register!

K9 Nose Work® is a new and fast-growing scenting 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.  For questions, contact Barb at the.elemental.dog@gmail.com or call (307) 421-5514.

Day/Time:  Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30pm

This class is the second in a series.  This class continues to develop the skills started in the Intro class.  Students will begin to work searches on vehicles and exterior spaces.  Students can expect to do at least some work outside in most classes, weather permitting.  In harsher weather, skills will be introduced and developed indoors.  Handlers will gain more experience in reading their dogs, leash handling skills, reward placement, and search strategies.  Dogs will continue to develop confidence searching independently, work more hides at elevation, gain experience on vehicles and in exteriors, and begin solving more complex scent puzzles.

Advanced Topics in K9 Nose Work® – Short Courses

Location:  Pioneer Park Center (1331 Talbot Court)

Activity #165020

Click here to register!

The Advanced Topics classes are short classes that focus largely on one skill or area.  For example, a class may focus on handling container searches, working elevated hides, or handler scent detection.  The topics will be announced before class begins.  Teams should be on all three NACSW odors.  For questions contact Barb at the.elemental.dog@gmail.com or call 307-421-5514.

Session 1:  NACSW Skills Challenge #2 Set Up and Video The NACSW Skills Challenges are a great way to build foundation skills while earning titles for dog.  Finding the space and time can be a challenge in itself!  The Elemental Dog, LLC will set up one challenge each week over four weeks.  All three levels of difficulty will be included.  Each run will be videoed for teams wishing to submit videos to NACSW.  The blank area challenges will be interspersed throughout all four weeks as running multiple blank searches in a session is likely to be demotivating for many dogs.  Limited coaching will be available.  Setups will start with level 1 and progress to level three.  All odors will be used.  Even if you compete in venues other than NACSW, these foundational skills are essential. Fee:  $100 per dog/handler team (includes videos)

Day/Time:  Saturdays 10:00am-12:00pm

March 18 – Skill 1, Vehicle, Levels 1, 2, and 3

Session 2:  Close Proximity Hides Close-proximity hides become common at the NACSW Elite Level and in the upper levels of AKC.  However, helping our dogs learn to work through the potential converging and pooling and trapping odor will benefit all teams regardless competition level or venue.  Search elements will cover interiors, exteriors, containers, and vehicles.  If there is interest, a modified buried scenario can be included (smaller containers than AKC regulation for ease of set up).  All NACSW odors will be used.  Even if you compete in venues other than NACSW, these foundational skills are essential.  Prerequisite:  Dogs must be able to search independently for birch, anise, and clove.
