Intro to Nose Games is designed to tap into your dog’s primary sense – his amazing sense of smell! This class introduces the concept of a search game that you can play at home, and helps you learn to read your dog’s body language while giving your dog a fun sniffing workout! Each week increases the level of challenge for your dog. Any dog is welcome (reactive, shy, exuberant, senior dogs, etc.). The exercises are performed with one dog at a time and are tailored to set up each dog to succeed. No prior training is needed. The only requirements are a 6-foot leash and a generous supply of your dog’s favorite yummy treats. This class is similar to  K9 Nose Work  developed by Ron Gaunt, Amy Herot, and Jill Marie O’Brien.

 

Class size: Maximum 4 dogs 

 

Fee: $125

 

Requirements:

  • Current vaccinations
