Event description

Description

This course introduces you and your dog to scent detection - no experience required! This is a great way to harness your dog's nose and give him a job to do. This is valuable mental exercise that many dogs are missing out on.

All dogs must be crated during the lecture parts, and will be brought out on leash one at a time to work.

This is a one day course from 10:00am-4:00pm, with lecture and hands on portions.

Course will include:

  • Scent detection overview

  • Equipment

  • Canine olfaction and behaviour

  • Training a formal odor alert indication

  • Odor preparation

  • Handling and safety, on vs. off-leash searching

  • Clicker training odor recognition

  • Building search drives and odor obedience

  • Developing search sequences, patterns, prepped room observation

  • Container searches

  • Designated odor testing and competition guidelines
