SCENT WORK

SCENT WORK I
$100-6 week class;$136=8 week class

This class is to introduce dogs to scent work. Dogs will be taught to look for scents by pairing scents with treats. Dogs will work mostly with boxes, and then with other containers. Handlers will be learning how their dog alerts. Only one dog/handler team at a time will be working while the rest of the class watches and learns. This foundation class will pertain to all venues.

Students must bring their own crates, high value treats like liverwurst, hot dogs, etc., long line or flexi or at least a six-foot leash. Dogs must be on a buckle collar, harness, or martingale.



SCENT WORK 2
$100-6 week class; $136=8 week class

This class is a continuation of the Introduction to Scent Work class and is open only to continuing students or with permission of instructor.

In this class, dogs will be taught to look for scent in various places. Weather permitting, some searches may be outside. New scents and challenges will be introduced. Dogs should become more confident in finding scent, and handlers should become better at reading their dogs.


NOTE: If your dog tries to bite or has bitten a person, or lunges/snaps at other dogs, or you are not physically capable of controlling your dog, then a group class is not a suitable environment. It is best to consult with an animal behaviorist.
