Your dog aced the Introduction to Scent Work course and now you are ready to continue on with your sniffing journey. Let's up the ante by having your dog tackle more advanced interior searches and even taking the show on the road!
This means searches in dog-friendly interior spaces, such as a friend's house, the lobby of your groomer or vet, a local pet supply store. Lots of fun searching opportunities abound!
By following the K9 Nose Work® training methodology, not only are we giving your dog a strong foundation so they my be successful at a NACSW™ trial, but they will be successful competing with other Scent Work competition organizations as well!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Probably sound like a broken record, but its easy to follow, makes me (and therefore my dog) enthusiastic, go at my own pace.Introducing Birch Course
What did you enjoy about this course? Took me out of my comfort zone. Making me keep training logs. Teaching me to break down behaviors. That is huge because all I ever see is what I need to work on.Now What Do I Do?! Course
I liked the pace of the course, how the material was presented and most importantly all of the wonderful feedback. I think the at-home learning experience was far better, due to the enormous amount of feedback (and encouragement!) that we would not get as much of in a live class.Introduction to Scent Work Course
The explanation followed by the videos to show the skill or skills. That was helpful. The feedback on my videos was also helpful. The practices each week- gold!NW3 Trial Prep Course
