For graduates of Intro to Nosework. Whether you’ve just graduated from Intro to Nosework, or are much further along in your nosework journey, come join us to continue your training!
Advanced Nosework functions as a working group. This means it spans students new to Advanced Nosework and students who have been training in nosework for quite some time. It includes both skills, drills, confidence building and competition hides. Advanced Nosework is a 1.5 hour class.
Your dog will be taking a few breaks throughout this time and you will learn to help others set hides if needed (when you are not running). You will have many opportunities to study dogs and how they work odor.
We will be taking your Nosework to new heights and skills. Competing Odor, Inaccessibles, Alerts, Elevations, Convergance, Multiple Hides, Distance, Corners, Swirling Airflow and more will be introduce or made more complicated.
Always with a concentration on balancing confidence with skill for both the handler and canine, let’s continue playing this awesome game. Whether you’d like to continue to play Nosework for fun, to give your dog a mental outlet through the cold winter, or to eventually compete, every personality is welcome here as long as you’re kind to your dog.
If you’ve been through Intro to Nosework and your dog knows these three things, they are ready!
- Ability to Search for 2+ minutes (with a couple search cookies is fine) without giving up on the search or checking in with you.
- Know what they are searching for: Smelly Tree or other odor/visual combination.
- Know to stay with their scent for 2-3 seconds.
Bonus: Multiple hides and/or the ability to continue searching (for food or to clear) after finding a single hide.
