The NW3 Trial Prep class will mentally and physically prepare teams for NACSW™ NW3 trials. Some of the topics covered include covering the search area and reading when your dog has found all of the hides or if there are no hides, building stamina, training for high hides, how not to get lost during the search, dealing with the stress of the unknown, working under pressure as well as tips on how to prepare for the day of the trial will be covered.

Course Details

Congratulations! You’re moving right along. You’ve passed NW2 and you’re ready to tackle NW3. The biggest change from NW2 to NW3 is an unknown amount of hides. You will also have an additional interior search (3) and you may have additional vehicles in your vehicle search (up to 5). This may sound very difficult, but this class will help you not only train the skills you need to pass this level, but more importantly will help you with your mental game plan. At this level your dog knows what to do – now it’s your turn to add something to the team!

This class will give you the skills to do just that. You can’t have FUN with your dog if you’re stressed – let’s work on that!

Probably sound like a broken record but its easy to follow, makes me (and therefore my dog) enthusiastic, go at my own pace.

David L. for Introducing Birch Course

Took me out of my comfort zone.  Making me keep training logs. Teaching me to break down behaviors. And forcing me to look at positives. That is huge because all I ever see is what we need to work on.
