Scent Games: Amazing Interiors

 

Join Cassandra and take your dog on a weekly scent field trip.  We will practice the interiors components - containers and areas searches -  at a hotel, retail businesses, even the airport!! 

 

Developing search strategies and the confidence to search in many different venues builds on the dog’s abilities to manage and work in different environments with unforeseen distractions, and any number of scent challenges.  As this is an advanced course, students must have completed at least 2 scent classes and be able to work with all 3 target odours comfortably.

 

NOTE: Due to some business’ requests, certain weeks the class will be split into two working groups

 

This class is 1  hour a week for 7 weeks. Locations will be emailed to class participants.
