"Come out and have lots of fun and a tired dog"
Canine Scent Detection is a great way to have fun with your dog. You teach him to use his nose to find food and/or a scent that is in a container. You work together as a team and you learn how to read his body language when he finds the food/scent. Anyone and any dog can participate, even dogs that have challenges. Each owner and dog work separately by themselves. For those dogs that are reactive, all the dogs are kept separate during the class.
The benefits of this class is your dog is using his nose and therefore working his brain, which makes for a very tired dog at the end of the class. It helps to re-direct reactive dogs away from what causes the reaction. It is very easy to practice and lots of fun at the same time.

Started level Scent Detection (6 weeks)
Bring lots of your dog's most favourite treats. Natural balance, Benny Bully etc. You may want to only feed him 1/2 of his regular meal so that he is excited to work for the food. You will need to bring a 6 foot lead and a collar or harness.
As safety for all the dogs is important, all dogs will be in a partitioned off area while they watch other dogs train. Class size is limited to 4 dogs.
