Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the new, exciting dog sport of K9 Nose Work! It is based on the skills of scent detection dogs.
This meetup will be divided into two parts.

Part 1:Introduction to Nose Work - Presentation and Demo
Location: Starbucks, 1135 industrial Rd., San Carlos

Part 2: Practice a Nose Work Game
Location: nearby quiet, paved area

Note: Although Nose Work can be done almost anywhere, in order to set your dog up for success,
Foundation Skills should be introduced in the least distracting environment possible for your dog!
You may now realize how distracting it might have been, if we had met at a park for our first meetup.
(grass, bushes, sports, children running, playing and possibly screaming or calling, etc, balls, birds, squirrels, loose dogs, people jogging with their dogs, etc.)

During the practice portion of the meetup, we will therefore be practicing on only non-vegetative surfaces. In fact, we will be practicing in a quiet, paved area.

Practicing at home:
Foundation Skills should be introduced in the least distracting environment possible for your dog!
Be sure to set you, and your dog, up for success!

Places:
When thinking of places to practice, consider the wide variety of possible distractions for your individual dog,
At this time, avoid these places.
Practice in one room at a time, until your dog is consistantly, and easily successful, before mobï
Time of day:
Again: timing is important.
Noise:
Movement:
Enjoy This new and exciting dog sport
Foundation Skills should be introduced in the least distracting environment possible for your dog!
Therefore, beginning Nose Work skills are usually taught indoors, during a quiet time of day.

Enjoy this exciting game with your dog!
