Your dog aced the Introducing Birch course and now you are ready to continue on with your sniffing journey. Let's up the ante by having your dog tackle more advanced interior searches and even taking the show on the road!

We will continue using the pairing training method, to ensure our dogs continue their positive association with Birch.

Including field trip exercises will also ensure our dogs understand they can truly play the sniffy game anywhere! This is especially important if you are ultimately interested in competing with your pup in formal Scent Work trials!

By following the K9 Nose Work® training methodology, not only are we giving your dog a strong foundation so they may be successful at a NACSW™ trial, but they will be successful competing with other Scent Work competition organizations as well!


Have you taken the Introduction to Birch course or similar course?

Now that your dog has an understanding that Birch is indeed a worthwhile and valuable scent to hunt for, you can now delve into more advanced and complicated interior searches.

Are you interested in competing in Scent Work?

If this is the case, then you DEFINITELY want your dog to understand that they can indeed play the sniffy game anywhere. The field trip exercises in this course will be immensely helpful.

Are you already competing and noticing some issues?

We will be utilizing pairing in this course, focusing on helping the dogs understand how to work these advanced interior hide puzzles. Doing so can help inject a level of confidence and enjoyment back into the game.
