Florida Classes

Scentwork, Private lessons starting in November 2023.

Beginner Scentwork

Scent Work is a great way for dogs to use their nose and brains for problem solving.  Class will start out with learning commitment to odor.  Teaching them to focus on the odor as high value.  This includes a nose freeze or a behavior indicating that they are at odor and do not move until we release them.  We will be using a cocktail of odor including, Birch, Anise, Clover, and Cypress.  This is a great sport that can easily be done in your home.  But can also prepare you for Scent Work competition.
