Nosework for Dogs/Scent Detection
Would you like to try something new, fun and exciting? Does your dog like to use their nose and be mentally challenged and stimulated? Check out Sporting Scent Detection, the newest sport where all dogs are welcome!!
Click below to watch some of Impressive Canines clients find scents hidden in an off site building. The owners did not know where it was and had to trust their dogs instincts and alert cues. We will be updating with more recent photos and footage soon from the 2021 UKC Nosework trials!
We are excited to offer this program at our school and have worked hard to prepare and offer this to our clients! Nothing beats watching your dog use their own senses to find a specific scent hidden in a container, or a box, or under furniture, in a bush or hidden somewhere on a vehicle! You have to try this sport to truly appreciate how spectacular it is!!!
We are pleased to announce that not only is Jessica (Head Trainer) actively showing Rocky her rescue dog from Hobo Haven in UKC Nosework, this dynamic duo is having high success with a lot of praise from judges about their team work and Jessica’s handling style. Not only are they having success, Oakley (who has done all levels of obedience, as well as sport classes here with Jessica) are competing in UKC Nosework as well and are placing in the top two in every show in their division so far in 2021!! Congrats Oakley and Lana, I am super proud of you!!
We will be offering scent more often now as we highly recommend all dogs learn this amazing beneficial sport!! We will be using UKC scents and you can join whether you want to compete or not!
Intro Scent is 4 – one hour classes with max 5 dogs for $200 plus hst = $226 total.
Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced Scent Detection – 5 – one hour classes with max 5 dogs for $250 plus hst = $282.50
The Sky is the limit, and all dogs are welcome to join in the fun!!! I love watching the dogs work and have a blast finding the scent!
Would you like to continue your training in a new game like style? Have you ever thought, it would be nice if my canine put their own toys back in the toy box at the end of the night? Then this is the class for you!
In this session, we will teach you some simple tricks such as shake a paw, wave, rollover, sit pretty, stick em up, pray, be shy, bow, peekaboo and more! We will also teach you how you can target train, as well as label toys with a name, to assist you with getting your dog to pick up a certain toy and place it in the toy box, or you can simply teach a clean up cue and they put all their toys away.
Some useful tasks we may also teach are things like turning on and off lights, picking up your keys, pulling your socks off or bring you your slippers.
Come join the fun, where your canine will love coming to class and not want to leave!
