Open to all ages:
This class is ideal for anyone beginning Scent Work or for anyone who wants to take a step back and redefine their dog's final indication! This class intends to give you and your dog a solid foundation in understanding odor and developing a reliable Indication. Your dog will learn to indicate by sitting/downing while keeping their nose at the source of the odor. Doing this helps alleviate the dog giving "false" alerts because your dog will learn that good things happen when their nose stays on odor instead of looking to you for approval.
Let's focus on just YOU and YOUR canine companion. Your lesson can be at your home, my facility, or in a public setting; it all depends on your needs.
