Your puppy has an amazing sense of smell. They also seem to have an endless supply of energy! Why not give them a game they can play that will tap into that nose of theirs, give them a mental and physical outlet and help build their confidence?! Scent Work will help you achieve all of this and more!
Scent Work is the civilian version of what police and military dogs do out in the field. While we will not be finding bad guys, bombs or drugs, we will be working to help our puppies use their amazing sense of smell of work out various odor puzzles.
In this 6-week course, we will have your puppy find food, otherwise known as primary, in a variety of container and interior searches. While similar to our Introduction to Scent Work course, we adjusted all of the exercise in this course to keep in mind our puppies are only babies!
This means all of the exercises were broken down into smaller steps, we utilize play and potty breaks and strive to ensure your puppy doesn't get overwhelmed. After all, our goal is to have Scent Work be one of your puppy's favorite games. We do not want them to sour to the game or make any unintended negative associations during their fear periods.
So, get ready to have tons of sniffing fun in this course!
