Developing your dogs nose work ability further by making them search for cheese or a toy which has been hidden within 3 or 4 boxes.
We also do postal and bag searches, using envelopes and postal packaging, suitcases, holdalls and backpacks.
It may be helpful for your dog to have a search harness as you will be able to assist them with their searches if they are climbing onto chairs and other surfaces.
The harnesses will be available soon from our online shop.
The training is suitable for puppies and dogs of all ages. We currently have three levels
- Nose Work 1 – is the basic scent workshop
- Nose work 2 – you will learn handling skills and we will make the searches a bit more tricky. (You must have completed nose work 1)
- Nose work 3 – you will work your dog on longer searches, hiding scented items in box in a box in a box, this requires teamwork more efficiently & accurately. Postal & bag search. (You must have completed Nose work 2).
Each workshop is for 3 hours.
