THE NOSE KNOWS - Scent Detection
Dogs possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in humans. The part of a dog's brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is 40 times greater than ours.
Nose work requires calm concentration, which will improve your dog's cooperation and strengthen your relationship by building a mutual trust. It is a great way to spend mental energy, help shy and fearful dogs gain confidence and have fun with your dog!
This class will consist of various activities and exercises both indoors and outside to develop your dog's scent detection techniques and team communication.
Pre-payment is required to guarantee your place in class. You are not required to pay via the online option but it is available for your convenience. I also accept checks and cash.
