This class develops search drive and motivation to work, odor recognition and a clear focused response behavior for both Nosework and Barn Hunt. Our goal is a happy dog that will not only efficiently and methodically search for and identify target odors in a variety of environments and situations, but WANTS to work and play with their handler. There are no pre-requisites for this class. Dogs must be at least 16 weeks of age to participate.
Scent Work 101 uses birch as the target odor and will help prepare your dog for a birch ORT (Odor Recognition Test) under NACSW and / or Novice Container searches at AKC Scent Work trials.
