Due to the high level of interest we will hold the same seminar 2 x on July 8
8am - Noon Introduction to Nose Work - For Beginners
1pm - 5pm Introduction to Nose Work - For Beginners
Have you read about Nose Work((K9 Nosework)) / Scent Work (AKC) / Sniffing Dog Sports (Sniffing Dog Sports Nosework)?
Have you wondered if your dog can play in this arena? Come join us for one of these two workshops on July 8! Our presenter is Cheryl Hedge, a Certified Nose Work Instructor who already teaches classes in various loca- tions in Cincinnati.
These different events were created to help you train and encourage dogs to use their natural hunting and scent- ing abilities.All dogs can smell, so size, build, etc will have no influence on ability to train.
Because ALL dogs work alone, this is a fantastic venue for reactive dogs. The requirement is that the dog be safe around humans. The dog will be on a leash at all times.
The training is designed to encourage scenting abilities in a way that is fun for the dog and fun for the handler.
Dogs easily burn lots of mental & physical energy doing searches
Searches can be done anywhere you can take your dog
No prior training is required and no obedience is needed
In classes, dogs work one at a time and rest crated or safely in a vehicle between searches so reactive dogs can enjoy the activity, too
Shy or fearful dogs build confidence and overactive dogs put their energy into fun searches
Stronger bond between dog & handler as handler learns to observe, understand, and rely upon his dog
Following is a quote from K9 Nose Work, but it applies to all of the venues that utilize the dog’s ability to find an odor. “The K9 Nose Work® class concept and sport was created to provide an opportunity for the companion and sport dog to have an outlet for their natural hunting and scenting abilities and was inspired by the model of working detection dogs. The terms nose work, fun nose work, scent work, search work are all commonly used references to describe any activity where the dog is using its nose to locate a target scent or odor. Tracking, one of the most widely known scenting disciplines is another great outlet for nose work, but often people are limited by access to tracking areas. K9 Nose Work® can be done anywhere, anytime; thus a new sport for dogs living in any setting became available.”
