In this 6-week online course, we will be covering the basic concepts of Scent Work as an activity, how to get started, what foundation skills are crucial for a team to succeed in the sport all while instilling ways to ensure the game remains fun for all involved. Throughout this course, we will be utilizing the K9 Nose Work® training methodology, where we use treats, otherwise known as primary, to introduce the dog to the concept of the game. Using this approach works for a large swath of dogs, and handlers, and can ensure the activity remains fun and engaging.
