Sport Scent Detection – K9Klub
Part of K9Klub
Why monthly ongoing training? Because handlers love scent detection work as much as the dogs do. We work with dogs and handers to help them achieve all levels, and scents so they can trial and excel in any Canadian or US organization.
Scent detection is one of the few dog sports that lets your dog take the lead and do what comes naturally.
This is also the sport to be in if your dog is reactive or not a candidate for high level obedience training. Only one dog is ‘in the area’ at a time.
Level one scent is pure wintergreen.
Benefits of Nose Work:
- Improve your relationship with your dog
- Build your dog’s confidence
- Teach your dog to think
- Develop your off leash work
- Learn to read each other’s cues
- You and your dog will learn to work as a team
- Even lame, blind, deaf dogs can participate
- Great dog sport for people with mobility issues
What Do We Have Planned for 2017?
We will be hosting a workshop inviting a professional detection handler in the late spring, early summer.
We are in the process of hosting a trial in the fall
Continuous Start. Just drop by Friday night at 6 pm
