Intro to Odor Courses

Your dog understands what Scent Work is all about. Now it is time to introduce them to the concept of hunting for a novel odor! These courses will walk you through how to help your dog learn how to navigate hunting in a variety of search elements, while coping with incrementally more challenging set-ups.

We follow the K9 Nose Work® training methodology in how we introduce odor, build odor obedience and allow the activity to be dog-centric. Not only will this ensure your success in a NACSW™ trial, but in competing with other competition organizations as well. Best of all, fun will be had!

Get ready to take your searching to the next level!
