Intro to K9 Nose Work® – Intro to Odour
K9 Nose Work® – Intro to Odour is a 6-week long introduction to odour nose work class based on the principles of K9 Nose Work® (more information on K9 Nose Work® here).
Building on the foundation skills learned in our Intro to K9 Nose Work® class, your dog will transition from searching solely for a food reward to searching for specific odours (Birch, Anise, and Clove). Dog and handler teams will continue to learn from each other – your dog will be encouraged to search independently and you will develop keen observation skills on your dog’s body language and behaviour when in the presence of odour. Hides that are unknown to the handler are introduced at this level and teams will work both on- and off-leash.
