This set is located INSIDE @ The RHS Training Building.
Our three Working Groups are @ 6:00, 7:00 and 8:00
To ensure we group students into appropriate levels, when you register, you will be asked to select at least two times that work for you. Once I have the full list of students, I will divide students into the best suited groups.
For students who are preparing for Started/Advanced/Excellent Trialing.
This group is for students who have been through a minimum of Introduction to Nosework.
Our two Working Groups are @ 6:00 p.m. + 7:00 p.m.
To ensure we group students into appropriate levels, when you register, you will need to be comfortable being sorted into either time slot. Once I have the full list of students, I will divide students into the best suited groups. There will be eight students maximum per group.
We will be taking your Nosework to new heights and skills. We’ll be dealing with distractions, convergence, inaccessibles, multiple searches, clear areas, blind searches, multi-room hides, detailing rooms and more.
To balance new skills with keeping old skills tight, we will also give focus to alert behaviors, proofing skills like corners and whatever training holes our dogs show us.
Always with a concentration on balancing confidence with skill for both the handler and canine, let’s continue playing this awesome game. Please note that you do not need to be trialing for this level, but you do need to have the skills necessary for fairly confident Advanced-Level hides.
Students in this Class Should, At Bare Minimum Have
- Ability to Search for 2+ minutes.
- A strong understanding of the Pine and/or Wintergreen scents
- Have a Stay-at-Source Behavior started
- Have a Good Understanding of Using Your Leash in a Search Area
Assignments will be tailored to your general level, strengths and weaknesses.
Please note this is a full one-hour class.
