INTRO TO NOSEWORK
In this class we will instill in the dog a desire to search for something we want them to find and an ability to communicate to us that they have found it, knowing that there is a great reward at the end of that search.
Nosework is a great skill to build dog's confidence, reduce environmental sensitivity and provide mental and physical exercise through teamwork with the handler.

*It is recommended to follow along with the online version of the class (found in our CK9 Membership) before & during your in-person class!
