Do you fumble with the leash when working with your dog? Does your leash get caught up on objects and/or your dog? Do you find you are always in your dog’s way during a search? Are you unsure of how to use your body to keep up your end of the teamwork? Good body position and leash handling skills are necessary for that fluid teamwork in the sport of nose work. Learning the art of how to use your body and have good leash handling skills will allow your dog to work without interference from you and increase search performance!
We all know the value of rewarding our dog at source. But, how many times do you find you are dropping food when you are rewarding your dog? You try desperately to keep your hand at source but food gets pushed out of your hand by your dog’s shnoz or falls out during the reward process due to too many treats in your hand or the wrong kind of treat. Clean up your reward skills and never have to worry about faults for dropping food at a trial again!
We all want a dog that drives to odor. A dog that chooses to ignore the environment and is on a mission to get to source! What does it take to create that? Find out in Increasing Drive to Odor where you and your dog will learn the tools to create an intense desire to get to odor and ultimately increase search performance!
10 Working Spots ($65) ($110 if both sessions paid upfront)

Is your dog bored and need mental stimulation? Have you been wanting to learn more about how to get your dog started in Nose Work?
Foundation Steps to Nose Work teaches the skills to enable your dog to discover and enhance their natural hunt drive, have fun and build their curiosity and confidence. Nose Work is great for any type of dog, regardless of breed, size or age and is also great for dogs that are shy or a little uncomfortable with other dogs as well as those with disabilities! Come join the fun and give your dog a great outlet to use their natural hunting skills!
There will be 2 sessions available, the 2nd session adding more skills and learning. You must attend the 1st session in order to attend the 2nd session as they build on each other.
