COURSE DETAILS

Congratulations! You’ve passed an NW1 trial and now you’re onto NW2. In this level an additional odor (Anise) is added, an additional interior room is added, a possible additional vehicle is added, you can have multiple hides in each search (1-3) and the odor can be converging. You may have a distractor(s) in your container search and your containers can be made of plastic, metal or cardboard.

That’s a lot of changes from NW1! No worries – this class will prepare you for whatever you might see in an NW2 trial so you can have a FUN and successful day with your best friend.
