Dates: Saturday 10-27-2018
Time:  1:00 PM-2:00 PM

If you have completed your introduction to nose work classes and are ready to move on to the next step Introduction to Odor is the class for you.  In this class your dog will be introduced to the first target odor needed to ORT and compete in NW1 trials.  You can use this odor to do searches for fun when you are out and about as well as at home even if you are not interested in competing.  

Are you interested in returning to nosework after a long layoff.  Intro to odor is a great place to get those skills and help to build the mental stamina back up in your dog.  Intro to odor is also good to help bring the joy and fun back into an advanced dog that may be losing focus or making mistakes in their searches.

You will have all of the foundation skills introduced while adding odor to the searches.
