Beginner Scent

Beginner Scent

Stimulate your dog and their brain with the wonderful world of nose work. Our classes will introduce you to scent for competition or as an enjoyable activity with your dog. Either way it is always fun! In Beginner Scent you will learn the basics of why dogs are such amazing scent detectors. You will also learn how to imprint your dog on a specific scent or scents. You will train a formal indication and begin partnering with your dog on simple searches. Finally, you will begin learning the basics of how scent moves in the environment. You will need to bring a crate to class, and your dog should be comfortable with waiting in their crate during the class when it is not their turn to be working. You will also need to bring lots of high-value treats for your dog.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites are a dog that is safe with people and dogs and having a recall is preferred. If your dog is mildly reactive to people, dogs, new things we recommend an evaluation with the instructor.

  Notes: NOTE:This class will skip June 2, June 16 and July 7. This class requires instructor approval. If you are interested please email info@northfielddogtraining.com to get you in touch with the instructor You will need to bring a crate to class and, if necessary, something to occupy your dog in the crate between turns, such as a snuffle mat or a chew. You will also need lots of high-value treats (this is from the dog’s perspective; they should love what they are getting). Dogs must be worked on either a buckle or martingale collar, or a harness. Correction collars are not permitted. Although we will be working off leash most of the time, you should have a long line for on leash work (12 to 18 ft is fine).
