In this 6-week online course, your dog will learn to find a new novel odor: Birch. Teams will be concentrating on searching interior and container search areas. Handlers will also learn the importance of reward placement and timing, as well as how they can further support their canine partner, all while following the K9 Nose Work® methodology. Get ready to take your searching to the next level!
Have you graduated the Introduction to Scent Work course, or similar, and are ready to introduce your dog to concept of searching for Birch? Great!
In this 6-week online course, we will discuss how odor works differently from food, how to prepare and set your hides and to ensure your dog still loves the game.
We will be relying heavily on an approach called pairing, where we will be placing a treat directly with the hide. This will ensure the dog understands exactly what the rewardable behavior is: finding the hide!
Utilizing the K9 Nose Work® training methodology will not only ensure your dog has the preparation necessary to succeed in NACSW™ trials, but in any Scent Work competition organization.
