Dogs of Course, in association with the National Association of Canine Scent Work™ (NACSW), has created this 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® as well as other nose work venues, and to provide a model for effective instruction for current and future nose work instructors. We are happy to have nose work enthusiasts come to camp no matter their training methodology or preferred competition venue to learn more about the K9 Nose Work® training techniques and philosophy. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and try our methods if you are bringing your nose work dog. 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 foundation skills, all levels of exteriors, interiors, container and vehicle searches, improving skills for dogs already working the four required elements, building independent search skills, competition preparation, strategy and rules, handler skills, leash handling techniques, understanding how to read the dogs, motivation and reinforcement, trouble shooting and a variety of other necessary skills, PLUS loads of fun and camaraderie. Each day includes working dogs as well as lectures, demonstrations, or other activities through the day and into the night. We work with dogs that are already on odor from novices preparing for their first Odor Recognition Test to dogs that have earned titles at all levels. All dogs will be working on Birch. Anise and Clove may also be used in the working sessions for all dogs who have an NW1 title or higher. Dogs should be on all three odors if they have an NW1 or higher title. Only one working dog per working participant. The Camp Instructors want to give you the best Camp experience possible! Please know that depending on who registers groups may be constructed with dogs at more than one level. Our team of instructors are very skilled in working with dogs at all levels and will make sure that you and your dog receive your desired level of work during your sessions
