What is Nosework?
We are growing the sport of Nosework in OKC. Dogs love to participate in this sport and it helps build confidence and focus in your dog. The great thing about Nosework is any dog can participate; from 6-month old puppies to very old or retired dogs.
We train you to train your dog. In a matter of weeks, you should see your dog confidently ignoring distractions and become focused on the target scent. By the end of class, many of the dogs will be ready to compete for their UKC Pre-Trial and/or Novice Nosework Trials.
This is a fun, positive training class, you will learn about basic (and Advanced) concepts in searching for odor, how to handle odor, how to make and place hides, and how to teach your dog a distinctive alert while staying focused on the odor.
In the intermediate class we will introduce multiple scents - indoor/outdoor and vehicle searches.
At all stages the Dog must be made to feel it is successful, even if nothing is found during the exercise, a successful find MUST be immediately staged in the same session so the dog WINS.
