What you'll learn in this dog training class:

This class builds upon the foundation skills learned in Level 1 and focuses on skill building while searching for a particular odor. The three target odors in the order introduced are all essential oils: birch, anise and clove. These essential oils have been selected by NACSW and are composed of a specific makeup. 

We teach to dogs to search for the birch odor and to develop “odor obedience” while the handlers will learn some techniques for supporting their dogs in the search. While the dog learns to obey his/her nose the handler will develop a keen ability to read the dog. The difficulty will continue to increase at whatever rate is appropriate for the dog to keep them challenged and excited to be hunting.

We prepare the teams to be successful in a NACSW – ORT, (National Association of Canine Scent Work – Odor Recognition Test). There are separate tests for each odor.There will be an introduction to all four elements: Container, Interior, Exterior and Vehicles. These are the elements used in a NACSW Trial competition and they require problem-solving skills for the dogs and team communication

Prerequisites: Level 1 or instructor approval.
