Dog Nosework

November 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

- $100.00

HUMANS AGE 16+; DOGS AGE 4+ MONTHS (OR ALL VACCINATIONS COMPLETED)

This fast–growing dog sport teaches you how to encourage and develop your dog’s amazing natural scenting ability by using its desire to hunt and its love of food, toys, and exercise. This exciting detection style activity is appropriate for dogs of any age, breed, or physical ability and handlers of all ages and abilities. Each dog works separately, one at a time, so this is a class for dogs unsuited for a group setting. Classes are offered at all levels, from beginning to advanced dog handler teams. Ongoing sessions are held Sundays OR Wednesdays. Times vary by level.

Location: Varies; classes meet in classrooms and outdoors; advanced classes may be held off-site on “field-trips.”

Instructor: Georgia Edwards is a nationally-Certified NoseWork Instructor. A retired cancer physician, she first became interested in canine scent discrimination 25 years ago when her hospital therapy dog was able to identify patients with metastatic breast cancer. k9nosework@whidbey.net
