INTRO TO SCENTWORK

Scentwork is all about unleashing your dog’s most impressive sense - their ability to smell! Learn all about training and indication behavior, teaching your dog to search for a reward, and ultimately, indicate and search to a paired odor. 

All skill levels and ages welcome to our Introductory course. We ask owners to bring plenty of high value rewards, your dog on a harness or flat collar (no training collars for this activity), and a regular 4-6ft leash. 

Class is open to fully-vaccinated (Distemper, Bordatella, and Rabies), non-reactive dogs. No other training prerequisites!
