Introduction To K9 Nose Work®
This official NACSW introduction class is designed for all dogs of all ages and sizes. We accept puppies from 12 weeks and encourage you to bring your seniors as well. This beginning course will introduce both you and your dog to the game of K9 Nose Work®.
Introduction To Odor
Introduction to Odor is open to teams that have attended the Introduction to K9 Nose Work® class with Rock Solid K9 or with another Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI). In the Introduction to Odor class, we will revisit the box game and add an odor (Birch) to the environment.
Continuing K9 Nose Work®
This set of courses is for every dog (and handler) who has completed the official NACSW Introduction to Odor course or is on at least the first scent (Birch). We are continuing to challenge the team, introducing more difficult hides and eventually start going for the second and third odor (Anise and Clove). These courses may include coaching for trials.
Advanced K9 Nose Work®
When your dog is hunting all three odors (Birch, Anise and Clove), we integrate more handler training. Your dog's nose knows! It's the handler, who needs to learn to interpret the dog's body language and communication. We dive into the world of converging odors, inaccessible hides and empty rooms. These courses include coaching for trials.
Our weekly obedience classes focus on your dog. We do not apply a one-for-all training method, but instead create a program that fits you and your dog. Whether you just got your new pooch or you want to brush up on manners, prepare for competitions or shows, we can help. We keep our group classes small to make sure, we can dedicate our attention to each and every team.
