AKC: WORKING WATER HIDES COURSE
In AKC Scent Work, the Buried class has undergone some major changes, all of which are slated to go into effect October 1, 2019.
The most major change involves having dogs work water hides in the upper levels of competition.
In this 6-week course, we will walk you through how to introduce the concept of working water hides to your dog as well as how to prepare for the upper levels of the AKC Scent Work Buried class. All of this will be achieved while focusing on having FUN with your dog!
