Puppy Sniffing Games
Endurance searches. Working away from the handler. Speed searches. Blank searches. Inaccessible hides. We will expose your puppy to these advanced sniffing puzzles, and much more, in this course using fun and engaging games!
NOTE: The materials for this course will be released on July 11th.
In this 6-week online course, we will introduce your puppy to a series of advanced sniffing puzzles and problems for them to solve. But this will never feel like work!
All of the exercises are designed to be a fun game that your puppy will love to play. Especially if you plan on competing with your puppy in Scent Work at some point, these are the types of problems you want them to be able to sort out!
Even if competition and trialing was not a goal, giving your puppy a chance to further build and improve their sniffing game yields so many benefits: higher confidence, mental fortitude, tenacity and resiliency and much more! Your puppy will be hunting for primary in this course.
