Foundation Scent Work Courses

These courses are designed to get you and your dog started on the right paw! They focus on using food, otherwise known as primary, to help build the dog's drive, enthusiasm and understanding for the game of Scent Work. These courses can also be a wonderful way to bring the joy back into a game for a dog who has been competing for a while, or for a dog who may have some holes in their foundation training.

We use the K9 Nose Work® training method for these courses. This means not only will these courses prepare you and your dog to have a solid foundation for NACSW trials, but for trialing with any Scent Work competition organization, all while focusing on having fun with your dog! Happy Sniffing!

Does your dog love to sniff? Are you looking for a way to work them out mentally and physically with an activity that is still easy for you to do and fit into your busy schedule? Do you need something to help build your dog's confidence or curb unwanted behaviors stemming from boredom? Great! Then the Introduction to Scent Work course is for you!
Have you graduated from the Introduction to Scent Work course and are looking for ways to take your Scent Work training to the next level? Wonderful, you are in the right place! The goal with this course is having your dog approach each of these highly distracting, and oftentimes difficult, areas with focus and enthusiasm! Let the fun begin!
Your dog is doing great searching for primary in all four of the elements (Interior, Exterior, Vehicle and Container). Now they are ready to put all of their training to the test! In this 6-week course, we will improve upon three specific skills-sets using primary alone: building endurance, building speed and building independence.
