Nosework (Scent Detection) Training Packages:

Any dog regardless of age, breed, size or temperament can enjoy and benefit from this activity. Nose work is great for building confidence in a shy dog, giving an active dog an appropriate and challenging outlet for its energy or helping a reactive dog overcome its environmental sensitivity. These sessions are private 30-minute sessions to give you and your dog a basic understanding of how Nose Work works. Generally, in these sessions, your dog will be able to start doing multiple container searches with environmental objects around as distractions. Additionally, your dog will have a firm understanding of how to conduct a proper search and to be able to properly alert the handler that a target odor has been found (paired with a reward).
Cost – $300 for 5 Lessons or $600 for 10 Lessons.
*Some dogs may rapidly excel at nose work and do even more advanced searches in the sessions and some dogs may need more sessions to complete the curriculum. Nose Work is all positive and training is conducted at your dog’s learning pace for optimum results and to ensure the dog is conducting thorough and accurate searches.
