Just starting out in the sport? This 4 week class is for you! Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. This class focuses on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. It’s a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy and to find out just how good is your dog’s nose.

qToys and/or treats: HIGH VALUE toys and treats! For example: If your dog loves the tennis ball or the rope…bring it, not the squeaks he doesn’t play with; If your dog loves chicken but is not jazzed about snausages, bring the chicken… bring a few things in case what you thought was going to work, doesn’t. Also if your dog likes food, please bring several small treat pieces for the training.
qHungry & Motivated Dog: Please either don’t feed your dog just before class, or feed a reduced meal so that your dog is hungry and motivated. Also if you have a high energy dog, please don’t burn them out with a long hike or play session before the class
