• Price: $20.00/per dog.
• Welcome to Scent Detection/Nose Work Class- Level One and Two This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and provides a safe way to keep your dog fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.
Nose Work starts with getting your dog excited about using their nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms, exterior areas and vehicles. This class is for beginners.
As your dog grows more confident with his nose, target odors are introduced and competition skills are taught. You can compete at National events or do it just for fun with the entire family.
