Nose Work Workshop

$15.00$65.00

NOTE: Kits will be available for $21.00 (includes one box and odor kit to help practice skills at home). Additional search boxes will be available for $13.50 each.

This workshop will teach you about the sport of canine scent detection and give you an opportunity to have some fun training your dog. You will start by introducing your dog to odors and teaching him/her to discriminate odors. We will work through the core games and skills that set the groundwork for you to successfully move forward and advance in the Think Pawsitive Nose Work curriculum. Ultimately, the dog learns to search for specific odors and find the source in a variety of environments. Challenges are increased as the dog progresses.
Benefits of Nose Work are:

  • Dog burns a lot of physical and mental energy
  • No prior training is required
  • Searches can be done anywhere you take your dog
  • Shy or fearful dogs build confidence and overactive dogs put their energy to work
  • Builds a stronger bond between dog and handler as you learn to observe, understand and rely upon your dog

Successful completion of this workshop will allow you to advance into Think Pawsitive’s Nose Work: Basic Searches class.

PREREQUISITE: None!

Both treat and toy rewards are used extensively to reinforce dogs for desired behaviors.  No pinch collars, choke collars or flex-leashes are allowed in our facility.
