Dogs of Course, in association with the National Association of Canine Scent Work™ (NACSW), have created this three and a half day NACSW approved Training Camp. K9 Nose Work® Training Camp is designed to enhance the understanding of K9 Nose Work®, to develop the skills necessary to compete in the sport of K9 Nose Work®, and to provide a model for effective instruction for current and future nose work instructors. Camp is open to all appropriate dog and handler teams as well as auditors. We will concentrate on the elements necessary to succeed at the sport and the application of K9 Nose Work® for recreation and increasing a dog’s confidence regardless of interest in competition. The curriculum for camp will cover starting dogs, introducing odor, all levels of exteriors, interiors, container and vehicle searches, improving skills for dogs already working the four required elements, competition preparation and rules, handler skills, leash handling techniques, understanding how to read the dogs, trouble shooting and a variety of other necessary skills, PLUS loads of fun and camaraderie.
