June Intro to K9 Nose Work in West Roxbury
Intro to K9 Nose Work class will take place at Theodore Parker Church in West Roxbury, MA on recurring Wednesday evenings (6/7, 6/14, 6/21, 6/28, 7/5, and 7/12) for 6 sessions. Each session will be 50 minutes long and be held between 5:30 and 6:20 pm.
K9 Nose Work is a fun activity for dogs of all ages, sizes, and levels of physical ability. The activity gives your dog the opportunity to use and develop their natural ability to detect odor. While developing this skill, they build independence and confidence while you build the ability to understand subtle dog body language through observation. This game allows our dogs to learn at their own pace, on their own terms, and it also strengthens our bond with our dogs.
For this class, each dog will have time in the building alone to help build confidence and independence off leash, which means the other dogs in the course will be outside while a dog is working. There will be an informational email after registration that will go over logistics, safety, considerations for all weather conditions, and frequently asked questions. If you think your dog will have difficulty waiting in the car you should plan to bring an extra handler to remain in the car with your dog so you can observe the rest of the class. Additionally, please contact me prior to registration if your dog has shown any aggression towards dogs or humans.
Intro to K9 Nose Work is taught by Aubrey Sperry, CDBC, CNWI, CPDT-KA.
