Course material will be released weekly starting on July 11th.
Endurance searches. Working away from the handler. Speed searches. Blank searches. Inaccessible hides. We will expose your puppy to these advanced sniffing puzzles, and much more, in this course using fun and engaging games!
In this 6-week online course, we will introduce your puppy to a series of advanced sniffing puzzles and problems for them to solve. But this will never feel like work!
All of the exercises are designed to be a fun game that your puppy will love to play. Especially if you plan on competing with your puppy in Scent Work at some point, these are the types of problems you want them to be able to sort out!
Even if competition and trialing was not a goal, giving your puppy a chance to further build and improve their sniffing game yields so many benefits: higher confidence, mental fortitude, tenacity and resiliency and much more! Your puppy will be hunting for primary in this course.
SHOULD YOU TAKE THIS COURSE?
Did you complete the Puppy Scent Work, Puppy Sniffing Indoor Adventures and Puppy Sniffing Outdoor Adventures courses? Continue the sniffing fun and show your puppy they can conquer super challenging hunting puzzles, all while having FUN!
Are you interested in eventually competing? A solid foundation is key. Whether you want to compete in a NACSW™ trial down the road, or with AKC, UKC, USCSS, PSD, C-WAGS or SDDA, the principles covered in this course will get you started right!
Do you just want to do something fun with your puppy? Scent Work is where it is at! Easy. Fun. Engaging. Simple. No burdensome or heavy equipment to buy. No need to stress about the amount of time it takes. 5-15 minutes a day, two or three times a week. That's it.

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
