Duo & Group Classes
Intro to Nose Work
(with Wait Time Perks!)
Lead by Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI), Gina Baker: “Let the game begin” This 6 week class is an introduction to the new exciting sport/activity of Nose Work. In this class we will teach the dog how to play the game. The primary goal is to have fun! This is when dogs get to be dogs. We will focus on building their natural hunting skills using their love of food treats (or toys) in a box. Each week we will add more challenging puzzles which in turn builds confidence – all using boxes and the amazing ability of your dog’s nose. While students wait for their turn to find hides, Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), Carly Davis will coach on leash handling techniques and a "Wedding Gown" emergency recall cue!
